The construction site

On Cat's construction site things start to rise sky high. The plans for storeys 32 to 56, howver, had to be rejected by the civil engineer corps ;-)


Underground bridge

The viaduct for the Underground also made a lot of progress.

And just on a side note, we lifted the viaduct by 1.5cm in order to allow trucks with more than 4 meters in height to pass underneath it.


Lights in the garage parking lot

Parking illumination à la Hamburg.

Not only Sturn here in Hamburg decorate their parking deck with this blue light...

Concrete bridge in Hamburg

The concrete bridges spanning the main lines take the S-Bahn (commuter line) and international long distance trains from the terminus to Hamburg Central Station.

Already now, works are not even finished half way through, some apparently young sprayers sneaked in and left their graffities on the walls. The local police is notified and took up investigations.


The open air bath (lido) in Hamburg's town park

Meanwhile, an open air bath is projected in Hamburg's town park....


The diving board at the lido

It features diving boards and an extra basin for non-swimmers.


A lit prototype in Knuffingen's ditch

Oops, so much for the photos of the new CarSystem prototype...


A lit prototype in Knuffingen's ditch

A "bad guy" brought remote controlled trucks and lots of batteries and so the day for Gerrit went by a bit "single-sided"... :-D
