Super series. It looks like a lot of work but also that they are doing everything possible to ensure this thing will last forever.

I especially like the last shot with the various stages shown. Quite fascinating!

We had a tunnel being built in Boston for over a decade called "The Big Dig." Somehow, the Italians manage to make a big dig look neat and tidy. Our's was a big mess.

Won't it be wonderful when this canal fills with water. It looks like maybe it will happen soon.

They're moving along fast, it seems. I can't wait to see it when it's done.

I hope the builders also keep such good photos of the progress, for the archives.
You need some good (and now hot) boots to work down there.
VP, I wish I had your technical vocabulary to describe such things.

It seems that once it's done, you will never know it was done.
