The initial remediation crew could not have got to the depth they're working now before the retaining walls were built, surely.

One thing for sure, you'd be fit.  Good pay I'd imagine too.

I drive past the cranes at Ira Needles and Highland daily and was thinking the same thing the other day!  As much as I love them, I don't love heights, so no thanks!

I cant remember where I heard it but ya, the pay is VERY good.

The Interwebz claim an average of C$40/hour plus overtime.

You wouldn't find me climbing up there for $40!

They are lined up again today in the rain.

Pictures please... Some of us work out of town..

Thanks. The hole must be deep but I can't imagine it going any deeper as the crane is already erected

When I was there on December 19th, I checked out the hole from Halls Lane, and only in the middle of the South West corner was soil left.   All the rest was dug up to it's final level.

Is there a thread for that project?  I can't seem to find anything, do you know what it is called?

I don't believe it's got a name. There's not much known about it to be honest.

Any info has been in the general suburban thread.

Man, does that crane with the big red lights on top ever look awesome, especially in the rainy night sky. Love it.

Reminds me of Japan, all the big buildings and harbour cranes had red flashing lights on the top. At night it looked so cool, especially in the rain.
