Are you shure they weren't footage of the strike that happened last year or in 2007?

According to News wire, the workers are currently on strike for the past two weeks. They are asking better working conditions and higher pay and back pay.

Really curious to see how the water looks with that two tone base to the lake. Could they not have made it deeper as well as darker? With the fountains raised off the base with some form of structure.

Also wondering do the pumps take the water directly from the lake, recirculating it or is it from a seperate system? The reason being when it is off or on surely it would affect the water levels in the lake, especially with the amounts of water the pumps throw into the air.

I think the water will come very soon. The whole lake is empty, no materials anywhere. So this is really the moment before filling the lake (I hope).

Yep think so too The only guys walking around in the basin today looked like they were engineers approving the work on the water jets. I'm looking forward to the test runs

The official height is still around 700 metres, while the actual height is certainly 818,0 metres if everything is build according to the plans.

Do we know for sure that none of the steel floors are for the residential or habitable purposes? In the video I saw, one of the guys say that some steel floors are used for office space and something else.

Sorry to ask you an unrelated question.

Does anybody know what happened to the car manufacturing plant.
Dubai was supposed to manufacture Small car called "Tiger Kub".
Did that get cancelled or is it still going to happen?
I cannot get any info on the internet.

About the lake:
How deep will be the lake? Does anyone know?

looks like water depth will be about 4ft? 1.2m? anyone agree.
scaling below bridge, the dark grey sections look like will be below waterline.
