Barrages or lagoons for the River Severn?

I’m not a fan of the proposed Severn Barrage. It’s typical government grandiose thinking which will take longer to come online, cost more and be less useful than the alternatives. The main alternative is a series of artificial lagoons on the river, which won’t interfere with shipping, have little or no effect on wildlife and provide power for a wider span of the day.
