By: P.T., STA

Work on the second tube of the Karavanke Tunnel on the border with Austria is running on schedule.

Turkish Cengiz workers have already bored some 550 metres of what is a roughly 3.5-km tube on the Slovenian side. No major problems have been encountered since boring started last August and is expected to be completed in two years. Supervisor Andrej Štimulak from Slovenian company DRI told the press that 6-9 metres of the tunnel is bored a day, depending on geological conditions.
