Mass Rapid Transport in Singapore 3

And of course, the TBM just like any other piece of equipment, needed to be serviced every now and then, owing to cutters that needed replacement. The deepest station on this line is at 43 meters below the surface.

 

Essential construction machinery above ground, currently at rest.

A fine circle of BBT [Big Boys Toys]...well seen, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: The hydraulic muscles of these devices make them relentless, Ray. I had the chance to do an internship in between my semesters at a maker of construction machine and it was my first introduction to these impressive but remarkably simply designed machines.
The size of some of these things are amazing!
Ayush Basu: The biggest of them can lift a ton of earth in one scoop, Elizabeth.
As Ray says, big boys toys....smile

All over the world you see these tough machines
Ayush Basu: You would want these hydraulic powered 'muscles' at any construction site, Chris.
Those CATS do the much-needed grunt work, Ayush, I'm sure...and need their rest, just like the rest of us!
Ayush Basu: Those hydraulic muscles behind those beasts of machines are relentless, Ginnie.

I can look at these machine for hours while they work, Ayush. Some driver are beyond genius...."CATS" are all over the world.

Ces engins ont des tailles impressionnantes.
Ayush Basu: They are relentless hydraulic machines, Martine.
neat pic!! almost looks like miniature machinery!
Ayush Basu: Now that you point it out, Elaine, it does!
A familiar sight on any construction project Ayush. When she was little my daughter wanted to be a digger driver!
Ayush Basu: Sounds like Barbie and similar dolls did not hold her fancy then, Bill smile

I laughed when I first saw this and read your title Ayush, I could not help but think ‘Singular Slow transport’.
Ayush Basu: Yes, now that you point it out, the image and title do give a striking impression at first, Chad grin

I'd love to have a go pm one of these. It would be fun, too, driving it through rush hour traffic smile
Ayush Basu: I had the chance to do an internship in between semesters at my engineering school, Alan. It was thoroughly interesting.
I see that they don't favour one supplier of such gear smile
Ayush Basu: Something about not putting all one's eggs and so on, Tom grin

Slowly but surely is the key to success.
Ayush Basu: Yes, the pace of work is relentless, CP.
