Re: 40 Shorty Test Shots
That's a bargain! Boston's Big Dig was originally budgeted at $3 billion for about 5 miles / 8 km, ended up finishing 10 years late and $10 billion over budget, and since completion has sprung many leaks that required expensive remediation, parts were paved with temperate-climate concrete which the New England winters have prematurely destroyed, and pieces of the roof have fallen onto passing cars with fatal results. Every day as my electronic account is debited by the turnpike tolls as I drive to work to incrementally reduce the interest on the bonds used to finance the project, I thank the geniuses at Bechtel Engineering for the boondoggle.dr croubie said:I think my construction site was bigger
(or at least more expensive, $812 mil for 4km)
