张广宁等出席新电视塔核心筒封顶仪式。
  本报讯 (记者陈翔 通讯员鞠杨、穗府研) 昨天上午,广州市市长张广宁一行前往广州新电视塔、广州歌剧院和珠江新城核心区建设项目等施工现场进行调研。张广宁指出,加快新电视塔及珠江新城核心区建设是市委、市政府贯彻落实科学发展观,强化广州中心城市地位和作用,提升城市综合竞争力,建设全省“首善之区”的重大决策,也是体现2010年“大变”、迎接亚运会举行的城市名片。张广宁代表市委市政府对各参与建设单位卓有成效的工作表示肯定和赞许,他要求各有关部门和单位要进一步增强责任感和紧迫感,以一流的工作,按期保质完成建设任务,把新电视塔和珠江新城核心区建设成为一流的建筑精品,为建设“首善之区”作出新的贡献。广州市委常委、常务副市长苏泽群,有关区和职能部门负责人参加了调研。

  昨日上午,张广宁一行首先来到广州新电视塔施工现场,他仔细询问了项目建设进展情况与项目安全系数,要求保证安全第一,质量第一,并加快整治电视塔周边的环境。随后,张广宁一行来到核心筒顶端位置,参加简朴而隆重的核心筒封顶仪式,张广宁、苏泽群等市领导和施工单位代表一起,挥锹将最后一筐混凝土铲入核心筒。 (下转A8版)

Guangzhou's New TV Tower Seals Its Top

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

29/08/08 11:19 Source: english.gz.gov.cn


Guangzhou's New TV Tower Project sealed the top of the 454-meter high main tower body on August 27th after 26 months of continuous hard work by the constructors.

Established at the crossing of Guangzhou's new central axis and the axis of the Pearl River landscape as well as facing the Pearl River on the north, Guangzhou's New TV Tower is a landmark project for Guangzhou. Its core tube structure of the main tower body is 454 meters in height and the antenna mast is 156 meters in height, which makes it a total of 610 meters high. The TV Tower can withstand magnitude 8 earthquakes and magnitude 12 typhoons with a designed service life of over 100 years.

After its completion, a 454-meter-high platform on the top of Guangzhou's New TV Tower, a "Tower of Terror" would be installed. Citizens can take it up to about 500 meters (not defined yet) to experience the thrill and bird's eye view a panorama of Guangzhou.

Thanx toddhubert, great pics.

Unmasking of the formwork always give different look of the tower, but nice to see major progress, and what people were asking about red steel beams on top did turn out to be reinforcement for the top concrete section. And not long left until the external ribbing catches up with the core, can't wait.

BTW is there any difference in property between the external ribbing of the west tower and guangzhou TV tower?

the photo looks scary enough thank whoever took that he didn't turn camera more to the right.

In the photo, there're two looping things right above the top of external ribbing, definately not crane or concrete tube, what is that?
