Day 219, 4 June 2013

Au Revoir, Hütte!

The Hütte (pronounced like "Hootie"), the big blue machine that's been dominating the scene since March, made its stately departure early this morning. It has been the star of two short videos that i've posted on YouTube: the first (CLICK HERE), shot on 26 March, shows it installing tiebacks; the second (CLICK HERE), shot on 1 June, shows it removing the metal tubes from around the tiebacks. Watching it in action has been a lot of fun, though i must confess that my eardrums will not miss it at all.  

Driving off into the sunrise
The Hütte was loaded onto a truck and driven off as the morning sun added a little dramatic lighting to the scene. Thanks for being such a cool and crazy-looking piece of machinery, Hütte!

  1. Thanks for the post, great to be able to follow the substation project as its impossible to be on the ground watching it happen during the day.


This blog exists for one purpose: to follow the progress of the CTA substation project. Your comments relevant to that topic are very welcome.
