Thats not true, first of all, they had to take all the bodies and debris out of 7 huge collapsed buildings (all over 7 stories), which took until 2006, in new york city, with their weather, that is super fast. And second, it took 2 or 3 years to completely restablilize the foundation (still,pretty good), and now they can finally start construction on the new complex.

What's the point in arguing with these people? If they can't see the dramatic difference over the course of the last few months, who's going to convince them?

that will be a crane #3. As far as we know there will be 2 tower cranes and one crawler crane. Crawler crane will also assist in construction of a new PATH/ subway terminal. There is alot of important things will be going on in next 6 months.

At the height of crane activity there will be 3 tower cranes and two crawler cranes. As soon as the plaza on the west side is finished I believe the other crawler crane will arrive, and the third tower crane will be attached to the side of the building so it won't arrive for a little while yet.*

*someone with insider knowledge feel free to correct me.

Well, thanks for posting even though we've all seen it hundreds of times already. It's all over the web and most prominently on wtc.com. Not to mention it rings the WTC site. But it is nice to look at. Even if it's 5 years away, and that's best case.

Something monumental would have to happen for 2WTC and 3WTC to even be U/C within 5 years I would say!

Desparye & AceFlamingo are right on target. I grow tired of reading the neverending and inane 'progress is slow' posts. Wish we had an autodelete function for 'em.

These are obviously people who have no earthly idea of the sheer scope of this project after the worst terrorist attack in American History.

I visit this thread atleast once a day, and most times I see progress somewhere. If you watch at the details, you can see it, but those other morons should just shut up! The construction has really speeded up like hell in the last couple of months! Just look at the crane and the platform which took only a few days! That is impressive!

It looks like in 999 to me alone could be a 1250. They are rated 250 tons and 300 tons respectively.

Looks like you're right. A lift capacity of 400 t vs. 200 t and 250 t for the Liebherr cranes working on the memorial. Jeesh. For comparison, each tower crane has a max of 64 t. I'm going to assume that the sites I got the info from simply listed everything in metric tonnes. (tonnes are confusing)

If the crane is a 999, then yeah it has about the same capacity as the other crawler cranes.
