In Spite of Opposition and Criticism California Breaks Ground on Bullet Train Project

In Spite of Opposition and Criticism California Breaks Ground on Bullet Train ProjectDespite of the criticism from the critics, the opposition from the public, the excessive cost and the lawsuits, compiled with the thirteen year lagging projected date for completion that is behind schedule, on Tuesday, Jerry Brown, the California Gov. broke ground for the likely most expensive project in the agenda of public works in the history of the U. S., that is the California bullet train.

California will probably spend approximately $4 million per day for the next 1000 days on the bullet train project.

As per the original plan the high-speed train was supposed to ply passengers from San Francisco to Los Angeles in just 2 hours and 40 minutes. Its completion date was estimated at 2033. Based on this promise the voters had narrowly approved the project in 2008 which was worth $10 billion in bonds. However over the years the estimated time for the distance to be covered has gone up considerably and the project to build the fast pace train has run into a number of problems, with experts exposing misrepresentation in the count of the ballot suggestion. That was not all even the opponents put in a lot of effort to sue and stop the project on grounds of environmental impacts and also on economic grounds.
