Sorry about the reflections, but there's lots of interesting things going on.
Notice the roadheader on the far left.

Does anyone know if an underground link to the MLC Centre will be kept from the new south station entrance? Plans show it as a maybe.

Construction cost inflation is running at about 5% and the NWRL tunnel contract was signed in 2013. That alone pushes it to almost 100m, and that was a particularly easy tunnelling environment.

That's altogether too broad a brush snowboard. Those I speak to who do tunneling tell me a different story about how the industry is maturing and the technology is improving. And yes Hawkesbury sandstone is a near ideal environment, but its also the default across Sydney and across the Hawkesbury (not surprising given the name).
