Today 15/10/10 the miners on the sub-alpine tunnel project will complete the break through, thus completing the longest transport tunnel in the world.

The Swiss will be celebrating in style with live TV coverage.

P.S. The 200 fatalities incurred during the construction of the original St Gotthard Tunnel should not be forgotten. Totally unacceptable deaths.[:)]
