    • Hi, thanks for the mention, much appreciated.

      Re the hole, it annoys, irritates and dumbfounds me that governments can waste $2 billion on a project and abandon it half finished. It isn’t the first time it has happened. I’m sure some use could be found for things like this if the politicians and bureaucrats had brains, but alas they haven’t.
