This is beginning to get off topic, but nonetheless....

Could someone knowledgeabe explain what the equipment in is?

Is this some kind of a bore, and could it have caused the cut? Because
if yes, then it is very probable that it will happen again soon - I
think I saw about 5 of these machines all around here.

Is there any official info on this cut, and does anyone know who is
paying for the work in the abovementioned picture and what it is for?
