There’s a rather good program on the iplayer at the moment about infrastructure projects by that nice man Evan Davis off the radio:
It features the BORING MACHINES Ada and Phyllis (they’re German apparently). Blodgett recently alerted me to this excellent website which plots daily the current location of BORING MACHINES!
My lady friend has friends who are making sure the soil doesn’t move too much on the surface whilst they bore. It sounds awesome until you realise their working through the night, and Hyde Park is creepy after hours.
