But what about seawater? Is the picture made at high or low tide? And when a typhoon comes, blowing south winds and driving a storm surge up Pearl River, do the riverbanks then hold water?

Hi all.

Less than 3 weeks untill the grand opening from the latest word.
Great to see this project completing its construction phase and moving into its (much longer) operation and maintenance phase.

I presume they will have a big ceremony with all the hoopla and fireworks - should be good to "see".

Is the lighting scheme finished? The unlit antenna is tragic.

Hmmm. Off topic, but I haven't seen you post much in the Abraj Al-Bait thread. I take it you're not into that kind of archetecture?

Hi sock.

Not sure. I'm going by the post in here a few pages ago. The pod ride may be done for the opening day but it doesn't have to be - it could be completed later.

Hi Random.

I have a dozen projects I watch and this tower is one of them - 1668 pics so far. Therefore I visit those threads daily. That being said I do check the Abraj thread regularly as it is a great project. I find alot of the posts there to be a touch too religious for my athiest tastes (like, way off topic)...

Although this is not Guangzhou TV tower, these technicians has a nerve of steel to do services at the top of the antenna!
