The Gotthard Tunnel is well worth the massive undertaking and nearly two decades of construction. A 9 mile tunnel allowing travel in the Swiss area is not only long awaited but much needed. The connection of this project will allow so much more movement and will also be an attraction for many tourists around the world. This is an amazing undertaking by not only the workers, but engineers and officials alike. The Gotthard Tunnel was well worth the wait, time and money.
The Gotthard tunnel was worth the time and expense. After nearly two decades, the tunnel was completed. This will provide a high-speed rail link under the Swiss Alps between northern and southern Europe. According to Switzerland, it will revolutionalize freight transport. Passenger trains will also use the tunnel, creating an easier way to commute and travel.
Construction of new things can be a major pain but if it is beneficial to people and their day to day lives then it will have been worth it. Now if it is just an eye sore and/or nuisance then it was a waste of time and money. But only time will tell with that one.
The Gotthard Tunnel is finally open, and it will be an asset to Swiss residents and visitors. However, the time frame and the expense is not worth it. In this case, a lot of time and money was wasted. It was not a good way to spend government and taxpayer dollars.
