Italians sweep the board at the International Tunnelling Awards


Could the key element of Autostrade per L'Italia's success be that its not like the Highway Agency at all. Its privately owned by the Benneton Family and raised most money from private tolls. As such, it can be more strategically focused on what adds long term value than the Highway Agency. That said, I know a simple short tunnel in Claviere (Italy) which has been under construction since it missed the completion date of the Turin winter Olympics in 2006. So perhaps the Italians have some of the same problems also.
