This development is proceeding without any sufficient research into alternative ways of dealing with the rainwater flow which currently causes the problem.
It might well be that there are practical approaches to dealing with the disposal of heavy rainfall.
The proposed tunnel is exorbitantly expensive and the works needed to implement it will cause devastation at a number of construction points.
It should not be approved until detailed study has been carried out to find ways of preventing heavy rainfall reaching the river.
