Today they started to drill – to put in the first of those 1000 nails, big nails. I was up there twice today and it is busy. At last. I will continue my vigilance. Early opening with traffic controls has to be a priority – even if it is weekends only though I hope works will be 7 days a week and all daylight hours. It must be opened ASAP, traffic lights, cars only – whatever it takes to get the closed signs moving in the direction of open.
Sorry to those who will be hearing a great deal of noise due to the drilling on the tunnel portals but if working around the clock means it can be open earlier, that has to be a good thing.
