So my guess was right, they are constructing a spiraling ramp that will go down to the bottom of the hole.

This really is blazing speed, at this pace they will reach the bottom in two months tops. By those projections I also think they have a great chance of reaching street level by late this year. Amazing to watch this quick progression.

Nice to see good progress with the digging here. Though i wonder why there are so less machines to dig out the dirt.

How long before we see some structure? Any clues? Amastroi2017, seems to believe street level by the end of the year? That's only 8 months away, but this is China.

Lol!! Dude, you got some issues
BTW, as a child, there was nothing more fun then snagging Carp with a Treble Hook and fighting them into shore. Channel Cat fishing at 2am with Grandpa was pretty fun as well

You ever bow shoot carp, talk about fun,I wanna try bowshooting these asian carp as their flopping 6 feet above the water, as your motoring down the river. They have competions to see who can get the most, grind them up and use them as fertilizer on farms. Channel Catfish, my grandfather would secure his pole to the dock all night, caught the 2nd largest Channel Cat recorded in Michigan about 1980 at the time. Back to topic,, this hole is only half way down? ZZII do u know how much farther they will go down, and there really doesn't seem to much excavation equip. on site. Seems like it's slow going compared to the others. But then again they don't have the final design approved? Is that correct?

I have made scientific estimates to calculate the width of the hole:

10 Chinese trucks times 8-9 meters equals 80-90 meters in diameter

No it's NOT the 404m. It's midrises and a shopping mall. How many times do I have to repeat this?
