Already counted the 8th one at Circle Square I'm afraid!

Drove past Circle Square today. Not sure they could fit any more cranes in such a small space

Looks like one is being lifted on Oxygen today
Hi forumers - has anyone any up to date knowledge about any cranes going up or coming down - just so I can update records ready for end of month count. I've been scouring the threads but I haven't seen anything. Cheers
A 4th one going up today at Oxygen

No 4th. The tallest is being jumped.

However the crane in Jrb’s image is for Clayton Hotel (1)
There is a new mast erected tonight. It looks like a 4th crane is going up at the side of the tall one
I'm just going off Slow Burns pics on the Oxygen thread and the construction statement which only mentions a max of 3 tower cranes.
Definitely 4 cranes on Oxygen now. No 4 was completed yesterday
