I'll bet that over the weekend, we'll see a lot of pieces arrive for the Hub.

That's rather strange, they shouldn't be continuing with the next 4 paired portals until they install the transition pieces. It looks the logistics have changed.

To which one?
All Calatrava's designs have an own common style, but the Transportation Hub doesn't look similar to any of the buildings of the Arts and Sciences City.

...I think that timo9 means the blue "Agora building" in the City of Arts and Sciences on the far right in the panoramic photo...




...which btw looked like that in the early designs...

I did not know the old renders for the Agora, it's true now its looks quite familiar. Anyway, i really believe the wings fit much better in the Hub than in the Agora.

Thanks for the info

Mobile crane (LTM 1220?) at the SW corner of the hub. Could also be for 3WTC (why would you need that when you have two M1280?). Anyone got information on that?

StravosG, the construction logistics looks nothing like the photos you showed, it won't look that messy. The only cranes on project are the two Skanska one and a crawler yet to arrive for skylight.

Honestly, I really do not like the design for the Transportation Hub. It reminds me of a spiky portuguese man o war fish

How long do you reckon until they install those pieces on the east abutment? And why did they have them delivered and installed at the same time as the west abutment?
