The master returns!!!! It's not for the BSC Sarah Village is it? Or is that just blue?
There are 2 blue cranes either side of the M602 in Eccles! !Whoo!
We've maintained having 40+ cranes for the last couple of years now, when people say Mancs development is 'slowing down', just show them that list.

It's still as strong as it's ever been. :)
40+ cranes! Wowwwtzerrr!
Hehe, there are 2 cranes in Eccles and 1 in Oldham!

It's spreading to the suburbs!
What's up with Potato Wharf? Canary Wharf sounds sillier to be honest!

MRI = Manchester Royal Infrirmary

CHIPS= Chips! One of Alsop's creations! Here it is!

And in Oldham for a resi development!
Suburb update!

Oldham is having a 2nd crane! A tower crane for the new medical centre was being erected this morning!

Plus.

3 (yes, three) cranes on the outskirts of Clifton Country Park, i assume for a resi development!
Flippin eck, surely we've surpassed 50 easily now!
The new Oldham Crane is a biggun, it's currently the 2nd tallest thing in Oldham!
2nd Crane up for the new medical centre in Oldham..

..it's bigger than the 1st, and taller than the civic centre!

3 cranes altogether in Oldham now!
It's across the road from 1 the crescent, opposite Salford Royal. Just a low rise (5 storey-ish)
The GQ may not be the most aesthetically pleasing of developments, but they don't mess around when it comes to construction!
A green crane that's been near Birch Services just off the M62 is being taken down today.

I swear, it's been there for about 3 years!! Like a mini landmark on my way to work every morning.

Sad to see it go!! :(
No, it's back again, I've still no idea what it's being used for!

2 Cranes at Hope Hospital....oops, sorry, I mean Salford Royal!
Eccles Update:

2 cranes at Salford Royal (Hope) Hospital
1 crane for resi development on Russell Street
1 crane for office development behind West One

4 Altogether!

There'll be more when Salford Reds' new stadium is in full flow! :)
It's a mobile/retractable crane - i think!
^^ Have they been jacked up I wonder?
There's a White crane in Walkden just off the East Lancs Road, possibly to do with either a new school or pipeline work.

And in my new hometown of Stalybridge, a red crane has re-appeared as the stalled half built Urban Splash development is restarting! :)
