The time between pours has been steadily decreasing. Maybe only a week till the next one now?

Given the winds at the moment I'd guess at things being a little slower for the next couple of days

Floor 5! = 120
I'm such a nerd. But seriously wow im happy, I was beginning to start losing patience with this one, but seeing that number is really satisfying and really does tell us that it is going to move on. Thanks LJ!

Would you prefer to embed the clip here, or simply to provide the Youtube link instead?

If it's the former then you have to delete everything up to and including the = sign (leaving, in this case, jsJUeutbngA) and type youtube in square brackets at the beginning, and /youtube in square brackets at the end.

Update

Spoke to several on site today lunchtime:

1) Next core rise next week
2) One more probably before Christmas
3) Shortly after Christmas next core crane rises (They can do 4 pours before each crane rise)
4) Simple math tells you they can do ca 4 rises per month at current speed which gets us to topped out by early 2013, completion 2014, which is what they said.

I can confirm LJ's impression that site is busy today.

The concrete truck today (second photo) was for the "edges" around the core

Who can tell me what the big steel blocks are for (first photo)? sorry for the bad quality pic.

Thanks for the update - I never dare to ask

I noticed a Byrne Bros truck this morning driving down Bishopsgate with about 20-30 of the steel things in your 1st photo. I did wonder if they were for the site. The pump is also back on the floor maybe for a clean - I guess this is routine??

That's not bad but I am sure the Shard rose more quickly.
