They are. This is above ground construction, they're actually building it now.

I'm amazed how fast this is going up considering steelwork has only just started.. it's been so many years of waiting, just like Heron.. This is going to be one of the most exciting construction periods of the next decade IMO!

Dont worry both projects will start rise into the sky as they "finished" the main ground works. Its important on what the tower is standing!

But don't need a good base in order to make a tower famous:

Well, the pics are not mine in case you haven't noticed. You have to look to the bottom where the source is.

Webcam shots from today.

Well, it's been more concrete pouring today! At the bottom middle of the shots, this area got its first, temporary layer of concrete. Then the rebar will need to go in, then the final layer of concrete.

Basework excavation continues, including close to the yellow mobile crane on the left hand side. I think concrete will eventually get poured on the right hand side immediately by the crane too, soon.

A lot has also gone on by the station side on the upper levels of the station near the steelwork, but no idea what??

Some webcam shots from today:
