I have done my own costings. A motorway would cost anywhere between €7 million and €8 million per kilometre. That is well below €3 billion. It has been put into the public domain that this project will cost €3 billion. I deal in facts. The witnesses from TII have outlined the reason concerning TII ticking the box between €1 billion and €3 billion. That was my understanding. That does not allow someone to extrapolate a figure of €3 billion. I am okay with that. Am I correct in saying that the cost of a motorway per kilometre is roughly between €7 million and €8 million per kilometre?
