I'm really glad this project is proceeding. Will be another noticeable addition to the area.

It's in a great up-and-coming location.

The second tower crane has been made a bit bigger but not much. Looks like it will go up this week weather permitting.

Seems to be a glitch in the matrix. No one's deleted a post according to the logs and yet crawf's post is not here.
Exit on the right in the direction of travel.

Just mentioning that the site was shut down yesterday after lightning hit the crane, injuring a worker. He's fine thankfully.
An Adelaide crane worker has suffered an electric shock when lightning hit the machine he was working on as a storm passed through the city about midday on Thursday.

The man, aged in his 50s, was at Built Environs' Franklin Street building site, in the west of the CBD, when it is believed the current passed through a chain being used to help load the machine, CFMEU state secretary Aaron Cartledge said.

Mr Cartledge said the crane worker had been released from hospital, but it was a lucky escape.

"He didn't get directly hit, the crane got hit and it's transferred some of that voltage down the cable into the chains and into the crane chaser who was hanging onto those chains," Mr Cartledge said.

"He could have lost his life. He was lucky.
"He walked to the safety shed and got into a ute and was taken by the safety people to the hospital."

Mr Cartledge said the man was in a satisfactory condition and was taken to hospital as a "precautionary measure" so his heart could be monitored.

He said at least one other crane was hit by lightning in the CBD but the Franklin Street crane was the only one operating at the time of the strike.

Crane work at the site ceased, but was expected to resume on Friday.

Mr Cartledge said workers and builders needed to be aware of regulations relating to lightning.

He is very lucky to be alive. I remember flying back from Melbourne last year and there was a storm moving in and we couldn't get off the plane until it had passed. The workers couldn't go outside either as it was too dangerous for them.

Any type of out door work should be stopped and workers take shelter (preferably not under a metal structure) until the storm(s) have well and truly passed.

Yes the existing crane has gained height and a slender tower for a concrete pump is in place . Also a car ramp is being formed up near the northern boundary wall.
