Seems to be taking an inordinate amount of time to see any visible progress here (going on a rather distant viewpoint of my passing commuter train) - I'm assuming given the number of stories above ground that the piling work is substantial.

Any likely estimate of when we might start to see the core and more rising?

Given that the pilling required is for two towers , both on the same scale as St George's tower. They olny have one opportunity to get this right.

My guess is that so allusive core's should rise by the end of quarter 1 this year, besides both towers are due to rise at the same time.

It's worth noting to the more impatient amongst us just how congested the sub surface works in London can get!



Sorry, these are somewhat dark:

Approaching end of Q3 and they're still working below ground.
That's some piling work!

What's going on with this project, you only ever see a few blokes moving a few bits about passing on the train, there is nothing productive going on and no core to be seen!
