Southsea Seafront Tidal Defences

Southsea Seafront Tidal Defences

Description
Hi All, There's been talk about updating sea defences around Portsmouth and most recently along the seafront, so I decided to do a little update to the car park sketch. At some point there's going to be need to raise the defences along the seafront and I've added that requirement with the idea of sinking the road into a tunnel. Not a new idea I'm sure. This obviously results in the loss of the ability to park up and look at the Solent, but a wall need to go up at some point so why not lose the road and improve the environment & character of the area. I'm thinking along the lines of a road tunnel running from the Blue Reef Aquarium (high ground) to the Hovercraft Port. Maybe with an underground car park at both ends. Recently I saw a report about using Moss to filter car pollution in cities so I've added this to beds along the tunnel roof, no idea if it would work but got to be better than how it is now at the height of summer. This is obviously all very fanciful on my part but as ever it's a bit of fun for me and maybe a little bit of inspiration for others.
