Highlights of the 1st quarter 2011, from the 3rd Quarter Report:

• Complete Metal Deck to D35 for PATH Hall Roof
Subsequent to the PATH Hall steel installation currently on going, the installation of the metal deck will be the precursor to placing concrete in that area. The concrete will serve a dual purpose, as it will be the roof of the PATH Hall and the floor of the Memorial Plaza.
• Complete Installation of Super Columns
The Massive Super Columns provide the main support for the steel girders that span the MTA’s #1 Subway Line in the underpass area. Once in place, the girder installation can continue ultimately ending in the transfer of the load of the subway box from the temporary minipiles to the permanent structure in the area.
• Pour Roof Slab for 9A Underpass
Located in the western portion of the site, the 9A underpass provides continuous pedestrian access from the Wintergarden of the World Financial Center to the World Trade Center Site under Route 9A (the Westside Highway). Once the roof installation is complete, the finish work can commence in the pedestrian walk way.
• Substantially Complete D15 Wall south of the PATH Hall
Spanning almost the entire length of the World Trade Center Site, this critical wall running north-south provides structural support for the PATH Hall mezzanine and infrastructure for the construction of Greenwich Street.
• Begin Platform A Construction
PATH’s Platform A will be the first permanent platform for the new WTC Transportation Hub. As work continues, the temporary PATH station will be phased out as new, permanent platforms are built.

It was Antoni Gaudí who designed Sagrada Familia in fact, but it is true he used nature as inspiration

They started connecting the subway box to the temporary structures in the eastern bathtub. Should be time for the supercolumns also to continue growing to support the whole thing.

Don't know if this video has been posted before, if so then I missed it but in any case it is worth watching; it shows how one of the 120-ton-columns is lifted into place..

Question, are they going to use a crane to build the Transportation Hub?

Two super columns on site now. Looks like they are welding the two halves of the first one together before installing it.

For some scale, the track unit of the 18000 crane is 38' 9" long.

Yes, as was pointed out to me in another forum, there are better references in the pic.

(For some reason I was obsessed about the scale of the length of the columns.)
