As of December, there's really nothing left to do except to built the tower itself now, which is why 2008 is the year when we see everything take shape and go up. The company hired to build the substructure will be hard at work from now on until June.

They need to provide us with a new construction fact sheet from 2008 on because the next phase of construction is starting.

Nothing really. But it's slow, and understandably so. I mean this is a huge building, no one should expect the foundation work to be done in an instant. But like Ebola said, once it's completed in 2008 the tower should start rising quickly.

Construction of the tower began on Thursday April 27, 2006 at 0830, NOT September.

Go look it up if you want to.

The formwork definitely went up. If you compare Sundays picture and todays picture you'll see that the core forms are now up to the same level as the core floor gorms, which wasnt the case on Sunday.

Hmm, something arrived on the webcam on a flat bed trucky, looks very long and slender and might be some steel, but I can't be sure because of the distance from the webcam. Also it could be something else which I forgot what it could be but Tag_One posted what that was. (boy that sentence is confusing, reading it again).

Do you have a pic of it that you can post? Someone might be able to make out what it is.

It think at least one truckload a week has been coming with some more steel.

Wow that last sentence, I thought that only Shakespeare could write that difficult
You mean the truck that arrived at about 10:30? I watched them carefully but they doesn't seem to be columns or pipes. It looks like they're piles or something for the underpass project. Between 12:15 and 12:30 the "piles" where moved away from the site. The drivers of the cranes where lunching by that time so they couldn't be hoisted to the Freedom Tower site. Hope that helps a bit.

You might be able to find pics of the new station - both interior and exterior at SSP. I saw them there before.

Also, try this address; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_T...ATH_station%29 .

The World Trade Center main page will download. Scroll down to the section that reads; The Other Buildings. You should see the words PATH Staion. Click on that, and near the bottom of that page, you'll find a pic of the new station kiosk there. Good luck!

The station IS u/c, but it's just not to the point where anyone can make out the shape of it yet.
