Only in her penultimate paragraph does she give the game away by mentioning the “revised” budget. Nowhere does she acknowledge the “revised” timescale. As I recall, the original estimate was for opening in 2011, later amended to 2012. Now 2014 is “on schedule”.
This whole charade was from the beginning no more than a political vanity project, which will be fully exposed as such only when it finally operates and people are able to appreciate the pitiful service provided as a result of massive expenditure and chaotic disruption.
