At the end of last week, ( sept 30th 2016) there were only 80 meters to dig. Except hazard, Eiffage should have completed the drilling of Chambon diversion tunnel in a fortnight. It took less than four months to dig the necessary 496 meters. Additional works (upstream tunnel portal and crossing the brook Lavoir, piercing of the emergency tunnel) are also nearing completion. The piercing of the diversion tunnel of Chambon, who must restore the RD 1091 and the normal connection between Briançon and Grenoble, was hired in early July. It mobilizes forty workers, day and night. The Department of Isère wants to temporarily open this new tunnel at the end of the year in time for the winter season, "barring the unforeseen." The tunnel will then be closed again in mid-March 2017 to complete its development. It temporarily open the heart of summer, then definitely at the end of 2017.
