160m long drilling machine travels from Immingham to Goxhill

The monster tunnel drilling machine will have to be taken apart and moved to the site on several lorries

A 160 metre long drill will be making its way through Goxhill today and tomorrow.

The machine is being used to excavate under the river Humber to make room for a replacement gasline.

The deliveries will be on the road from 12 till 3, they are slow moving so delays to traffic are expected at these times. 

The tunneling will start early in the new year.
