Leave alone the one mounted on a track outside the compound. There is the other one within the site. The track one is helping to install the permanent one.

I passed by the site today with hopes of getting a snap, but the guy in charge adamantly refused.

The foundation works are however well on course.

I can take pics from the Delta building side easily, am usually unable to post the pics like how you guys do it, but i can upload on Flikr or something, and share the link.

from Delta building there are no Mabati, just a plain clear view of the steel spokes and huge concrete block they are moulding way down below.
