I am a 4th Year Geography Student at the University of Dundee in Scotland, UK. As part of our final year of University, we have to undergo a dissertation project of our liking. For summer 2009 and now summer 2010, I have fortuitously had the privelage to work in the town of Locust Valley on Long Island. Last summer I heard local people disscusing the idea of a tunnel or a bridge spanning the width of the Long Island Sound, and I found this a very interesting topic. I have therefore decided to base my dissertation around this topic.

I have been researching Mr Polimeni's 2008 propsal to construct a tunnel from Oyster Bay to Rye, and the potential economical, environmental and social benefits this may bring to the local communities surrounding each town. I therefore wish to investigate whether the residents of Oyster Bay and Rye believe the conveniance of the tunnel and possible economic prosperity for buisnesses outweighs the increase in traffic through their neighbourhoods and any potential environmental impacts this may provide. I would be greatly appreciative if you could assist me by offering any additional information, which you feel may benefit my studies regarding the economic and environmental implications of the tunnel, also your own opinions on this very interesting and thought provoking topic.

Many Thanks for your time and any help you could offer me would be greatly appreciated.

Yours Faithfully

Graeme Jones
