Long before terms such as cost-benefit analysis, whole life costing etc were invented these concepts were being used by governments to choose solutions to infrastructural challenges. In North Western France, within 12km of each other, are examples of two remarkable pieces of infrastructure. Both were built to solve the same problem, how to cross a water obstacle. However the solutions chosen for each are at the opposite ends of the spectrum with regard to cost, scale and ease of construction. Both are quite close to Roscoff and its ferry port and are worth a visit if travelling to/from France via this route.
