We just moved the river aside…

Some of the Tunnel documents

“So we just moved the river to one side, built the motorway tunnel through the river bed, then put the river back on top”.

It was the Project Manager speaking, explaining the basic concept for building a motorway tunnel underneath the major river in Singapore – a sort of engineer’s poetry.

The actual project was of course huge and took several years to complete. It generated masses of paperwork and it is strangely absorbing to edit the reams of reports and follow-up documentation.
