Just take a look at some progress just from TODAY:






As you can see that big gap on the right has now been filled with steel beams, and some new steel on the left half behind the core.

[Had some database errors earlier... hopefully this will work this time]

I'm back from a week's holiday so some pics from today, with a few more to be found in my Shard Gallery

I've a feeling I'm going to be itching to buy a longer lens as construction proceeds

Starting out with a couple of lesser seen angles on the core

Platform 13, London Bridge Station




From Weston Street, to the south of the site - I expect the scale relationship to Guy's Tower to be reversed in due course




Leathermarket Street




and a closer circuit of the rest of the site...

London Bridge Street - frame and floor have filled out since I last saw it, with a lot of secondary steelwork being added and another flooring level clearly under way above the one that now appears complete.






The pedestrian bridge over St Thomas Street and Gate 1










Gate 2, east along St Thomas Street




A closer view of those new levels to the right of the tower crane in the pic above




Chap on a cherry picker tending to a plate that's been welded to the face of the horizontal element at the top of the white column




Some steel erection on the eastern side of the site behind Gate 2.

Great pics. Can't wait to see it myself when I am over there later this year. Should have progressed quite a bit by then.

I thought I really had to go look at some new columns that had been mentioned on the London thread today, what with the weatherman promising rain for the end of the week and all...

[as usual, more from today's pics in my Shard Gallery]


Peeking up St Thomas Street




From the entrance to Guy's on the pedestrian bridge




Closer to






One curiosity that caught my eye - a couple of steel guys apparently removing one of the diagonal bracing members of the 'temporary' frame facing St Thomas Street. There was a lot of whacking it with a sledgehammer.




A couple of other photos I liked, just for kicks

Outstanding update, as usual, cyber!

The steel work is getting fun
