Been away for a week or so and notice some activity on the Beethams site at Stamford Street. Looks from my flat in Burrell Street as though they're concreting. Anyone know what's going on?

Thought I'd bring this back up to the top again! Workers still on site, but I haven't yet managed to find out what they're doing. Any info out there?

Answered my own question now! Network Rail has 'borrowed' the site to build concrete structures for the Blackfriars Station / Thameslink project. Not sure how long they'll be there, but it's only a temporary arrangement.

Unsurprising since Jumairah has been in trouble since November 2009......
