WORLD CUP: ONLY 41% READY

There is less than one month to go and  only 41% of all planned infrastructure are ready, according to an article at Brazilian newspaper Folha de São Paulo. Out of the 167 works expected to be done only 68 have been finished. Eleven projects have been abandoned and other 88 are either incomplete or will not be done before the start of the competition on 12th June.

A mosaic of all the stadia

The stadia. None fulfilled FIFA’s requirement

The worst department is exactly the one in which the population would have benefited most: urban mobility. Only 10% have been done!!! In other words: no airports improvement in most cities; no proper rail link between airports and cities. The group of journalist who have in the last 2 weeks analysed all the data also say that security and  telecommunications are other two areas which leave a lot out.

There is a video in the article which shows the team work. But it is in Portuguese
