Day of the building sector


31st May was the "Day of the building sector" in The Netherlands, and a certain number of works were open to the public. This was the case of the Hubertus Tunnel, a 1600m long tunnel which is going under the Hague and should be inaugurated next September. 3400 people walked into the tunnel that day. It was quite impressive to see!

Very cool shot!

Thank you, Andre. It looks like the tunnel has two exits only. That's a long walk underground... Not sure I'd like to take that route too often.

A very nice shot. I like the lighting in the tunnel.

@Fénix - Bostonscapes: I'm sure it will become a tunnel for cars. This special opening was the only time the public is allowed to walk there.

Thanks all for your comment. I just realised that my Hyperlink that explains the whole project did not show up on my post, and just corrected it.

It is a long car tunnel, with an expected maximum speed of 50 km/hour.

Total costs for the projects are reaching the €150 million.....A lot of money!

I bet it was impressive, it certainly looks like that from the picture!
