A few photos of me first on my job ,
Believe it or Not , I do NOT Get paid by my Employer to publish photos, Social Network, or do anything at all on the Internet during work hours/ days. There’s a lot of down time most days at work.My work would be quite happy for employees to just set on these “quiet ” stations and just be a human camera and just monitor traffic ! Blogging,Social Networking, On the Internet entertains me, keeps me awake / alert ( which is what I get paid to … Stay alert/awake ) and cognizant of my surroundings. I also listen to my own choice of Radio….Sirius Satellite Radio . I love it. I bring it to work, set it up and take it down at the end of each shift.
This Inspection Station #3 on the South Island has a few reasons to be here :
#1. It serves as a last ditch back up station to stop vehicles that should not go thru the tunnel from doing so, whether those vehicles are large trucks, or small cars or vehicles in between.
#2. If any situations occurring in the tunnel need traffic stopped just before the tunnel, it is stopped on the Island Station.
#3. Help for lost and broke down motorists .
#4. There are other reasons , too many to elaborate on .
Some photos of this area and inside this Office Cubicle Sized booth :
These small booths have, small refrigerator, microwave oven, heater/ AC thru wall unit, fluorescent ceiling lights, Our walkie talkie radio with extra battery, roll down darkly tinted window shades, etc. Some of the “comforts of home ” .
