Southern Electric guided drilling machine
Southern Electric guided drilling machine
This machine is designed to drill under roads so that cables can be installed without digging up the road surface. It had met an obstruction and the drilling was not going according to plan, hence the up in the air attitude of the machine. They had to dig the road up in the end. I think the works were installing another 33 KV cable from Southampton 132/33 KV substation to the Western Esplanade 33/11 KV substation.
