that's big enough for a person/ persons to fit in. but i agree, not much comfortable space for public visiting, except perhaps at the base of the crescent. this is probably just for maintenance purposes.

Its a balancing thing, so they'll go side to side, you can't just install one half of a 35 ton crescent and then go for the other. Its seriously DANGEROUS

I would love to see that some pranksters at the building company changed the design of the crescent into a banana, it can still be done.

Looks like the Crescent will be completed with only 3 more Lifts. Cool

They're going to mount death ray machines in them, for shooting any interloping infidels.
