    In Canada it would have taken them 10 years to build this bridge because of the environmental permits requirements.

      It takes even longer in the UK, :). Newts have more ‘rights’ that the people do.

      Russia:- Good planning, Built on time and Built on Budget.

      Western Nations:- None of the above.
