No sign of workers here, neither last night (no lights on site also), nor this morning.

That mock-up of the design has been removed from there.

The sad thing is that from past experiences with redesigns, for the new design to be completed, approved by the Municipality and for work to resume it will take so long, that I'm not keeping any hope for it to happen within 2007 year.

You can see that the mock-up is not there anymore.
