Does your country have any big infrastructure projects lined up?
>>
>>54971877
No.
>>
>>54971877
No, but we should, there are plenty of big things we could do to improve this country. Like a massive alternative energy project or something.

Why not make our roads useful, and turn them into solar power generators or something of the sort.
>>
>connecting everywhere to London
lol

This one isn't that big in terms of money, but it has the potential to be big. The first ever British spaceport will be built around 2018
>>
>>54972181
you do realise that solar roadways has been been debunked multiple times?
All of their marketing is absolute bullshit and even a one mile stretch of highway in Arizona would take like 50 years to pay off. And that's assuming that there's no clouds in those 50 years

The troops here only increases our chances of peace. Russia is not that stupid to invade a country with this shitty infrastructure and increased defences..
>>
>>54973648
Yes but it will only be used for civil transportation and tourism after that project. All others will have to go through the new waterway.

This wont allow us to have a upper hand militarily but right now we are not earning a penny from Bosporus and if this project becomes real it will probably make ten time more money then Panama Channel

Citybanan commuter rail tunnel under Stockholm. Will increase capacity at the "Wasp's Waist" and will affect 80% of the rail traffic in Sweden one way or the other.

Delayed for 25 years before construction start because "expensive", the real reason being to have it finished slightly before the gigantic motorway bypass so that planners could claim the motorway helped. The commuter trains have 2 travellers per seat during rush hour, while the motorways only have 0.25 passengers per seat.

The tunnel itself enters service at the end of 2017, but won't reach full capacity until 2025 when local and regional trains get fully separated on the last of the branches. And possibly even later as capacity problems move farther out of town because some faggot decided to cheap out and build single-track railroads in the 1990s.

Of course, while the north/south motorways are clogged during rush hour, and the motorway bypass will take some of the load, it's just terribly overengineered with its 60km of tunnels. Rebuilding a bundle of country roads farther out of town would have cost a fraction of the 3-7G€ and still taken care of the elusive "long distance road freight".

In fact, the acess tunnels alone are long enough to be the southward extension of the Metro Blue line planned in the 1960s (a project that only started to move last year).
>>
>>54974819
Oh you don't know how ridiculous shit here is.
The bare existence of words such as "Palnfeststellungsverfahren" which no other language has equivalents of should be telling enough.
Then you have ecofascists (in this case worried about muh 3 fish that could potentially get confused in their swimming patterns), neighbours, ferry lobbyists etc etc
I love people with such attitudes "Stop nuclear energy yay!... What, a wind turbine in a 10km radius of my house? Not with me!"
My favourite infrastructure fail examples are those two:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elbe_Philharmonic_Hall
>Started in 2007, scheduled for opening 2010, now for 2017+
>Initial cost about €80M, now €800M+
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berlin_Brandenburg_Airport
>Started 2006, scheduled for opening 2007, now for 2017+
>Initial cost about €1.7G, now €7G+ (actual current cost projection is even classified!)

Somebody nuke this infrastructural disaster of a shithole

>>54976834
But can you give me one reason we would have a problem with that? I follow the news and have never seen this canal mentioned. It seems to me that Russia, if anyone, is the country which might have problems with this, because they have territory on the Black Sea and a base in the Med. The UK only has bases in the Med. Sea, so why should we care about this canal?

>And it's where many of the the Islamist Dictator talks come from.
That's about the freedom of speech stuff, and Islamism doesn't exactly have a great reputation here. These criticisms are quite normal of any country which erodes freedom of speech including our own.
