This car tunnel in the city of Ufa could had to be really huge. It was constructed in four lines under a high arch. Its construction began in 1992. The works were stopped in 2004 and nobody can say if they get back to work again. Only one worker is now in the tunnel.
The city of Ufa.
It was planned to build a 974 m long bridge leading to the other bank of the local river. However, construction of the bridge never started and the land was occupied by local citizens and their houses.
In 2008 it was decided to continue the construction process. But experts say that corrections of the primary plan is necessary postponing the construction for an indefinite period.
Connection 2 unites the northern and southern tunnels.
Height of a man will make it more clear how huge this construction is.
Constant noise shows that pumps are evacuating ground waters.
The turn leads to the southern and western tunnels and the exit.
Workers can be met in the tunnel from time to time. According to them, the construction will hardly be completed soon.
The person seems so small
‘Cage, elevating capacity 25 tones and loading capacity – 14 people’.
The project is very complex and expensive. But its dismantling will be even more expensive than further construction. Workers say that there is no way back, they can move only forward. Sounds exciting.
