On the site, the majority of the footers now are waiting for the supports to be attatched.
Final preparation of the footers on the lift hill suggest supports will be fitted soon.
Construction of the station has now begun. Here one of the floors has been constructed, and is waiting to be layed.
The station is having machinery fitted to the underside of the floors, probably to allow them to raise and lower as in the Nemesis station.
Massive track sections have now been delivered. This is part of the brake run into the station. Unusual colour, isn't it...
Loads of support steelwork has also arrived.
More support steel work, which will either form part of the lift hill, or the brake run.
A close up of the brake run track shows the brakes.
