Is it safe to have that many cranes so close together?

Is it safe to have so many cars packed together in the highway, while travelling at speeds of 70 - 120 MPH?

Yeah, but cars aren't swinging around carry heavy loads on a building site however...

...I'm sure it is all carefully handled ElVoltageDR & complies with all the safety regulations.

Thanks again Raffles

...but good luck for a 2009 opening. Such a vast & complicated project!

Yeah but those cranes aren't swinging around carrying heavy loads, this is just the piling stage.

... plus cars also swing around changing lanes or handling intersections, both with or without signals. It just takes cordinations.

They are not in use??? Surely they would be carrying loads sooner or later. Why are they in place then? Looks like there is a lot of material etc on site. It all didn't get there by magic.

Err, maybe in your city or town? Certainly don't think so in Singapore.

My point is that with coordinations everything can be done, like trains not going head-on on single tracks.

And the density of those machineries (ONLY half of which are actually cranes) is not bigger then in other BUSY construction sites, as far as DENSITY is concearn. What is extraordinary is the area that is being worked upon simultaneously.

The biggest problem there is logistics, i.e. delivering and storing the materials, NOT the movement of the crane's arms.

i think engineer call it mobile crane hehe ....

it does carry something which is its original usage. but its not as big as tower crane.. and before using so many crane in a site they are supposed to seek advise from engineer (and authority for such a complicated construction sequence)

so.... no worries!

Of course the cranes are mobile cranes (called also crawling cranes) and the other machineries are piling rigs which movements are mostly vertically.

I think we are both agreeing Atlin. Language nuance thing perhaps. Just the analogy of the highways threw off.

Another aspect of coordinating work for such a large site - handling the movement of thousands of workers to the site and from their quarters, and providing housing for the workers.

F**KIN UGLY PIECE OF S**T.........what is wrong with the world....JUST BECAUSE WE HAVE THE TECHNOLOGY TO BUILD ANY SORT OF STRUCTURE , IT DOESN'T MEAN THAT U CAN BUILD ANYTHING....ESPECIALLY THIS RIDICULOUS ONE......it's ugly big time....more than ugly.....this is annoying....the whole world is trying to moderize the architecture and stuff...but this kinda stuff just spoils it......i give 1/10.....shud be negative 10/10 but the three towers would look much better without the stupid platform on the top.....oh ya u know what.......s**t man.....to certain extent this building might actually spoil the entire skyline of that region.....there goes the skyline.....goodbye to a much better older skyline there....

I love this projekt really much, but while looking on the last aerial pictures from post#196 i hope they wont destroy the beautiful "forest" behind those newer projects to make place for others..........the buildings with the forest in the background would make Singapour something special imo!
