The last time Newsline climbed to the top of the highest worksite crane to take in the view it was a frigid December evening. Three months have passed and although the changes do not strike the eye, they are real.
Three months have passed since Newsline climbed to the top of the highest worksite crane to take in the view of the construction worksite and although the changes do not strike the eye, they are real.
Beginning this summer, the view will change dramatically. Pillars will rise, beams will be positioned at regular intervals and, for a while, the Tokamak Building and its trademark bioshield will be half-hidden by the steel lattice of the Crane Hall's walls and roof. At a later stage, the extension will be clad in inox like the rest of the ITER buildings. By then, the worksite will look like the "artist renditions" we used to publish when ITER had yet to become a reality.
