Thanks for the photo update 234Sale..

Would you say the 'Lake Park' Island is still going ahead? I can't really tell from your pictures. AltinD seemed to think it had been cancelled altogether.

I happen to doubt that, but by seeing new aerials of the area, it has become clear that it should still go ahead.

Sorry Culwulla, you need to remove from your diagram the top crane tower frames as they have now been fully removed. Only the support base is still there.
