I've listed everything I can remember, arranged roughly by area.

Southern City Centre
Beetham - 2
River City and surrounding projects - 4
St Georges - 3
Vie - 3
GN Tower - 2
Eagle Star House - 2
University Car Park Cambridge St - 2
MRI Superhospital - 5
Aurora - 1

Western City Centre/Greengate
CJC - 3
Spinningfields NCP - 1
Tempus - 1
Spectrum - 2
red ones near Spectrum - 2
John Rylands Library - 1
GMEN - 1
Rosetti Phase Two - 1

Northern City Centre/Piccadilly
Skyline Central - 3
Site next to Skyline Central - 2
Royal Mills/surrounds - 3
Piccadilly Place - 4

Issa Quay - 1
Piccadilly Car Park - 1
IVLA? - 1
Next to Ovale - 1

Salford Quays

This gives us 49 in town and 56 including the quays. Phenomenal.

A few more than this I'm sure, what are they people?

Ones to expect soon:

3 & 4 Hardman Square
Chancery Place
Probably a new Green Quarter one for Jefferson Place
Erie Basin Tower
40 Spring Gardens
More at spectrum
Sarah Tower perhaps
Pall Mall

There is 1 going up now at church street in Eccles. This of course won’t be included in the Dec count but will it be in Jan? Did we agree on whether Eccles is part of the Crane Count?
We've had this discussion and I'm pretty sure we agreed to include cranes in town, the Quays and in districts very close to town. I wouldn't have included Eccles but I only do the updates I don't decide what to include or what not to include so I'll wait to see what other forumers want and respond to that. My opinion is that whatever argument could be made for Eccles could be made for almost any location in the conurbation, well certainly within the M60. What do others think?

Good afternoon fellow forumers. I have not been on the forum so much lately so I've had a quick look through all the threads but can't see any changes to the crane numbers. It would be helpful if you good folks would let me know of any additions or removals since the last count. Thanks in anticipation. TR
