Salam Street Tunnel works

I took a few photos today showing the progress of the tunnel works outside our apartment building. Although there has been no official statement declaring that they will not meet the October deadline (about 6 months later than the first date), it is clear that they will not. Maybe by year end? If not early next year I would guess. It will certainly be a major improvement when it is finished and maybe traffic can flow more freely through the whole city as a result. It is also clearly a major feat of engineering which actually looks like it is being done properly - well done Samsung!
