No further work seems to have taken place on the entrance to the lift hill tunnel section, although work is now going on in the station area.
In the loading station area, concrete is now appearing. Note how the middle section seems to be seperated away. Perhaps a different level of concrete in the middle of the station for machinery or perhaps theming.
An overall view of the lift hill tunnel shows that soil has been used to fill in the edges of the concrete, and work can be seen going on in the loading station.
It appears that the lift hill tunnel now is just awaiting steel.
The large seperate section of the tunnel waiting for coaster machinery and electronics.
