Could be a matter of months before we see any real action at street level. Depends on the jump. All the action is below the surface......at least there is action. The extending crane thingy had a guy working the hooks with nothing on this arvo. Just finishing off for the day.

Anyway, according to the guys I spoke to there is plenty of action below.

Enough to change the status to U/C?

That's the impression I got.

Looking forward to PeterJackson's regular updates next month. Hopefully some photos from above.

I pass this every Tuesday and Thursday and apart from the aforementioned mobile crane dicking around in the corner looking like it's doing nothing I can't see any progress at all. From what I've seen I remain sceptical until I see a crane and a line of cement trucks.

I'm skeptical of any development at this site until I see a core rising! I've been burnt before.

There was lots of hammer drilling noise from below today. Don't know if you've heard that. Also a couple of bins with rubble. Seems like we're still digging holes.
