    construction project will finally be

    Can I say this in English
    To my mind it is also important to answer the question when the construction project will finally be finished.

    The sentence above is clearly a question. What punctuation mark should you have used at the end?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    "... to answer the question of when the project ..." would be OK.
