This thing cost less than Boston's Big Dig

Took as long, was on budget instead of 190% over budget, covered 10x the distance and probably will have fewer problems (leaks etc.) in the future.

Granted it didn't have existing infrastructure in the way, but it went through a fucking Alp! Guess we should have hired the Swiss for it.
