Shell's Tunnel Boring Machine parts delayed by lock-on
mayo | miscellaneous | news report Saturday October 13, 2012 00:19 by Shelver - RSC
First segments eventually delivered to tunnelling compound,11 segments to come
On Thursday night Shell's efforts to move parts of a Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) critical to the Corrib gas project hit another delay as protesters blocked the main gate of the refinery site with a concrete lock-on.
Two protesters from the Rossport Solidarity Camp locked themselves into a 400kg reinforced concrete barrel from 7.30pm until the Garda protest removal team finished cutting them out at about midnight. By this stage about 20 people had gathered at the gates in support, but this was out-numbered by a force of about 50 to 60 Gardaí which was clearly already planned to mobilise to move the TBM.

Good to see that the tunnelling machine has finally made it's way to Aughoose. Time to get on with digging that big hole. Might find something useful on the way.
Meanwhile Shell have been charged by local farmers in Nigeria and by Friends of the Earth with massive pollution
how ye managed another lock on right under their noses is beyond me, they must be really stupid. fair play, hope the guards weren't too rough after the lockon was cleared. keep it up.
