So nowt in east Manchester then? ...tsk...tsk.......
There doesn't appear to be any doka's amongst that forest of cranes.
They must have laxer building codes in Dubai. Steel frame only?
Anyone done a crayon count yet?....

Where's that bleeding coat again....I'm me own worst enemy....

wow. counting cranes is so sad.
The crane is an endangered species in some areas..... ;)
I reckon there must still be 40+ cranes in Manny atm.....
I take it that's a no then?
Well Smarty, it would depend on whether you mean 'floors reached' or the intended totals.

If the latter is what you want it's availlable if you take the trouble to search.

The former would be too difficult to maintain.

Just trying to help you lad....

Saw 3 trucks with pink crane sections heading into town today. Any clues?
Pink? Probably Canal St. district.

I'm here all week...
Where? Here or Canal St? Either way that's great news MP.
I'm not gay. I just help 'em out when they're busy...
I saw one the other day on Regent Road. Then again it might have been a Heron.
Or some bloke storking a chick...
I think someone's had their cornflakes pissed in...
