I enjoyed reading your column about the road from Linden-Lethem -“foolishness or an investment”. Missing from your readers consideration is the concept of a rail link.
In the 1830s, one of the early rail links between Paris and Normandy was criticised as its speed of 30 km per hour would likely cause cows in fields to die from heart attacks.
Let me assure you cows in Normandy have survived even greater train speed, and continue to produce rather good cheese.
I don’t know the speed at which a cargo link between Brazil through to Georgetown would cruise at, but I take it wildlife in the Green Nation is resilient. Rail transport is greatly gentler on the environment, especially peoples way of life.
