Ms Coren Mitchell dropped a massive stitch tonight. On the theme of Tom Hanks movies, the 4th option would have been Bridge of Spies. Of all the things she mentioned about this film, she omitted to say that the Academy Award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role went to... (drumroll) Mark Rylance. Unforgivable.

Not exactly a "bridge over Bosnia" suze, at least not how that sounds - more a "bridge around Bosnia".

Thanks egg, I hadn't realized that the bridge wasn't actually over that piece of Bosnia which adjoins the coast. It will still have to cross Bosnian waters though, and it seems that Bosnia is less than keen.

The town of Neum shown on that map extract does not currently have a usable harbour, and neither is there very much of a road from it to the main Bosnian highway network - in practice, most access from Bosnia to Neum is via Croatia. But the Bosnians have ambitions to build a harbour and also to build a motorway standard road to Mostar about 30 miles distant. Accordingly, they are concerned about clearance for shipping under the bridge.

This bridge we discussed 10 years ago was finally built yesterday. They expect to open it late next year.
