That tall, 'pillar' like structure remaining on the site...what is it exactly and will it remain and be attached to the Ribbon?

Also another question - the freeway bridges, are there any plans for some beautification?

Exhaust for the Cross City Tunnel. It won't be touched.

The roads are not part of the project. So no lipstick has been budgeted for.

By Christmas we should have a core rising above the viaducts and a lot of potentially distracted drivers passing the site.

COMMUNITY UPDATE NOVEMBER 2017: NOTIFICATION – TEMPORARY ROAD CLOSURE OF HARBOUR STREET

Upcoming Activity

Key activities during November include:
1. Start of the temporary gantry installation over Harbour Street;
2. Completion of the hoarding extension to incorporate the land that the closed carousel, Sydney Visitor Centre and associated Property NSW offices are on;
3. Erection of the first tower crane;
4. Continuation of onshore piling works;
5. Ongoing construction of the ground slab and west lift core.

The temporary gantry will have the important function of providing overhead protection to road users throughout the construction of The Ribbon. It will be approximately 60m long, 32m at its widest point and 5.5m high.

Harbour Street Road Closures

In order to install the temporary gantry safely, Harbour Street will be closed to traffic 5 nights per week from Sunday 5 November until Thursday 14 December 2017 (weather permitting).

To minimise disruption to road users, this work will occur from:
10.00pm – 5.00am each Sunday to Wednesday; and
11.00pm – 5.00am Thursdays

Electronic message signboards and detour signage will be in place, and traffic controllers will be on Harbour Street to assist local traffic. Please see the detour map on page 2 for alternative access routes.

Other works on site will occur during normal daytime construction hours.

During road closures alternative access remains available for:
1. Northbound traffic via Bathurst Street and Kent Street
2. Southbound traffic via Western Distributor, Harris Street and Pier Street
3. You can contact us at any time prior to, or during, these works for more information.

Should make the gantry permanent and build a big leafy pedestrian bridge across.
