Default Time-lapse tunnel in Amsterdam

This video is fascinating. It's the building of the new metro tunnel in Amsterdam. It's a series of 500,000 photos taken during construction assembled into a video: http://www.rnw.nl/english/video/rise...00000-pictures

Yeah, cool time lapse. But they need that technique because everything built in Amsterdam always takes "just a tad" longer than planned

It is a cool photo set, especially the way it ends up looking like a movie.

As far as everything taking longer, that's not a problem only in Amsterdam, believe me. But they were doing what they could to keep street closures to a minimum, which means keeping their working space to a minimum, too.

I thought that was all Dutch public transport developments. They've only just started work on the tramline that has been on the cards long before I moved to Delft

You are in the country long enough to know about Rotterdam and what they say of that city, where people always work, the city that never sleeps. Read the history of the Metro of Rotterdam, a megaproject that didn't went billions overbudget or took years longer than planned

Yep! I remember you telling me about that when I first moved over here. Rotterdam is always being rebuilt.

I think that the only station I've visited recently that hasn't been in the middle of rebuilding though was Eindhoven. Access to Delft station occasionally changes without notice (or there is notice but I haven't been to the station for a few days).

Sort of like around here, where the four seasons are:
Autumn
Winter
Spring
Road Construction.
