Documenting the new motorway, #10: The whooshing deadline


17/05/2020 by ChrisJamesAuthor

One of author Douglas Adams’s most endearing quotes concerned deadlines: “I love the whooshing sound they make as they go by.” There is certainly going to be a loud whoosh as the deadline passes in August to complete the S2/A2 extension.  Although I work in the legal industry, I’m no lawyer.  Nevertheless, I shudder to think of the daily penalty payments the main contractor is going to be hit with, unless they’ve managed to renegotiate.  This stretch of motorway is not going to be just a couple of weeks late; all the way from the Vistula to Radosc, bridges aren’t ready, the surface isn’t laid, and the feeder roads are incomplete.  It will be fortunate if they can finish this time next year.

I will do a proper before-and-after post when the motorway opens.  However, if you don’t want to wait, click on one of the tags at the bottom of the post to filter all related posts.  The last time I pictured the bridge was last September, and my first post about the bridge was two years before that.
