How not to use a railroad track laying machine
A railroad track laying machine and its operators got into a rather funny situation last night, Wednesday the 15th of July 2015 in the city of Kosice, Slovakia, when some of the workers have possibly forgot to secure the machine into a steady position. The 10 tonne machine rolled of the tracks and fell into a hole that was also dug by the specialists working at the building site. Many bystanders and other commuters travelling through the city stopped and took pictures, then posted it on the social media sites. The company - the ZUE A.S. from Krakow, Poland is one of the two contractor companies who are taking care of all the tramline refurbishment, which is one of the biggest jobs running in the city right now. The overall refurbishment, which consists of at least 15 miles of tram tracks, has not been the smoothest ride. The whole process was meant to be finished by the end of August this year, but it has already been delayed until the end of September, and many locals feel that it won't be finished until the end of the year. The refurbishment is financed by the support of the EU, costing over 40 million Euros.
