Description
Send us your ideas for a work of imaginary infrastructure connecting Africa and Europe.
The crossing will give the economies of southern Europe and North Africa an substantial boost. If the Algeria-Morocco border, closed since 1994, is reopened and the road between them is improved, the connection might well prove economically viable. Forecasts suggest that a Gibraltar crossing could carry eight million people in its first year of operation.
