Yeah, they're all U/C now, but they have been held up for some time, and quite possibly could still go back On Hold in the future.

Stupid question but.. what are those big metal things for, and are they actually just stood up on the floor or do they go down beneath it?

Good to see some movement! I cant wait for this thing to rise above street level
Also, as the lifts seem to be on the outside, does this mean there wont be a conventional concrete core that will rise in the middle of the steel work? Thanks
