SE9, can we be meta for just a second? What is your job. I browse these forums during my lunch and after work, but you're here all day every day, posting updates on just about everything, with alarming regularity.

Don't get me wrong, it's tremendous work. I mean, not to get too mawkish, but you're really doing a public service here. This forum's MVP, for sure.

But are you just one person, or a group of people sharing the same login? Are you paid for this? Surely you work in some regulatory office with access to everything in the pipeline, right? What's your secret?

My job primarily involves making mathematical calculations. I'm a fast typer and compiler of information, so posting takes no time at all.

the irony is, I read every update to this thread, even though I've already read every update on the london forums.

ideally, I would use this forum to keep up with summaries of development in OTHER cities that I don't already read the local forums in detail, but the other cities' threads (generally) don't have an SE9, so they're not nearly as readable!

£198 million to build the scalpel, I thought it would be more expensive. I hope this doesn't mean poor quality cladding for this project.
