this got approved tonight and as such we should have a couple of new pictures, but construction should start in a matter of weeks.

What's missing is a photo of the guy in the ute doing some circle work at the bottom of the ramp













And here's a view/angle we may never see again:

thanks to Vibes for the photos, we have our first crane on the site for BHP Tower, exciting times ahead. there will be a second one within weeks and then the third crane and the replacement for the second crane next year.

I'm not sure if you guys are interested in this kind of thing, but here is some photos from the weekend showing the steps of erecting the tower crane:

The first step is to erect the mast:




Next the slew ring and machine deck is lifted up:


Then the cab and winches:


Finally, the jib (50m long in this case) is built on the ground and lifted into position, before being rigged up to the motors:










Fairly jargony I know, but I hope the pics are self explanitory. FYI this crane can lift 8t at full extension.

the core developing nicely, with the northern crane being removed so a new Potain 615 can be installed in place which can lift up the heavy steel beams

Latest Update

Progress is moving steadily, that's nice to hear. At least BHP is not pulling the plug on this one all of a sudden, yet.
