It REALLY looks like these projects will be completed soon. The work on them is serious and continuous and, in both cases, is at the "finishing touches" stage of the construction.
It is pretty funny to sit back and watch the "expert" expats who constantly criticize, with their ignorant projections and prognostications, efforts like these. Their thin veiled racism is embarrassing and very offensive and certainly does not go unnoticed.
