Builders bungle train tunnel
Bungling engineers have been left red-faced after building a railway tunnel that's too small for trains to actually fit through.

The costly mistake was only discovered when inspectors measured the finished tunnel in the Polish capital, Warsaw, and realised the roof was so low that no trains would get under it.

Rail bosses claim the mix-up happened because workers who were laying new tracks didn't talk to the team that was building the tunnel.

"During work on the tunnel, tracks were laid down on newly-raised ground which meant the distance between the tracks and roof of the tunnel became shorter," said Polish Railways spokesman Marta Szklarek.

The cock-up is the latest in a series of public transport construction fiascoes in Poland.

A tunnel built recently to divert lorry traffic in Warsaw turned out to be too low for lorries.

Last year, the Polish road authority produced plans for two sections of major motorway that would have missed each other by five miles - each coming to a dead end in the middle of the countryside.

Should have seen our bike prices. That a joke ;)

BTW. The London subway had the same ****up at the time it was built ;)

They are still trying to get the lightbulbs installed at the factory.
Jan is holding the lightbulb, and the rest of the employees are trying to spin the building around it.
i thought he was just holding the lightbulb, and waiting for the world to rotate around him.

Does this mean Jan can finally get that bionic finger (or thumb, I can't remember) that he has been dreaming of since whacking his off?

Maybe a little extra coin in the bail bond fund when he gets caught w/ the latest jailbait?

All joking aside, those bikes killed it @ Northstar when they weren't broken or waiting to get repaired. They eat baby heads for breakfast.
