From cutting a freeway in half, removing tons of soil and earth underneath it, and sliding in the tunnel to constructing a new three-lane highway, all the tasks associated with this construction job were completed in one weekend. The tunnel will enable the animals to pass through under the freeway.

A time-lapse video depicts as the 230 feet long tunnel was installed in the Netherlands.
