Second Tube Ready, Tender Only Hurdle to Full Tunnel

Ljubljana, 24 May - Workers on Thursday managed to complete the dig of the second tube of a key tunnel on a section that will round off the ring road around Ljubljana. While works near completion, the same cannot be said for a tender process for tunnel equipment, which threatens to push back the opening date, set for the end of this year.
