big machine

A machine that would make Bob the Builder green of envy, used for drilling holes in the rock. The holes are drilled in a large tunnel shaped circle, filled with explosives and ... bang. It's all part of the City Line, a six kilometres long tunnel for commuter trains under the city.

How did you ever manage to get this shot?

I'd certainly be jealous if I was Bob the Builder :-)

Jacob said...

Very impressive. Can you imagine doing all this by hand like in the good ol' days?

Super shot! You must know somebody! And you were probably wearing a hard hat!

Fascinating! I also know someone who would find this pleasurable. And his name is not Bob.
