George Street closed for light rail construction…in Sydney
I happened to be in Sydney and since they have George Street as well I thought I'd have a stroll by. It looks like parts of it have been blocked for for the light rail construction.

Night time works with a mobile crane, North Quay blocked off
Not sure what was going on exactly last night, but there was a mobile crane blocking off North Quay. I was hoping it would be assembling a new crane onsite, but sadly that was not the case. For a long time the mobile crane just stood there with lights off all around, it was gone by 3am.

Adelaide Street entry now in use
I was walking past the site the other night and managed to snap this picture quickly (apologies for the poor quality). It looks like the trucks are using the entrance on the Adelaide Street side now to load with the dirt being dug out.
11-May-2015
Night time works in progress
Elise has sent this photo in of the workers at the site working at night. It looks like they've started night time works. I've been past the site multiple times on the weekend too and there is a fair amount of work going on Saturdays and Sundays.

Footpaths are now closed around the site
While out for an evening walk and trying to walk past the site I noticed that the footpaths around the site are all closed to public now. The only way to get past is on George street. The North Quay and Adelaide St footpaths are completely inaccessible by foot.

More concrete and barbed wire fencing
More and more concrete is being poured in around the edges of the dig site. The side next to the overpass is getting a concrete wall now.

Super storm batters Brisbane and leaves some mark on the demolition site
After the crazy hail storm yesterday that flung ice cubes the size of a fist at high speeds, I went for a walk down towards the demolition site to see what happened there. The answer was not much, apart from lots of scattered foliage, the only real sign of damage I could see was a fence barricade that had holes punched in it by the hail.
03-Nov-2014
No more left wing and centre sections of the building
The left wing and the centre of the building is completely torn down. The trees on the other side of the building are visible from George street now.

Night time photos: More scaffolding up
Here's a bit of a special rare treat - night time photos of the demolition site. I thought I'd go for a walk down the block and see what's happened in the last few days and the answer is - more scaffolding has been put up. The BCC side of the building is covered in the scaffolding now, but no mesh yet. There is no action on the overpass side at all that I can see.
14-Nov-2013
Night shots of the build site
I went by the site last night and took some photos of where the building site will be, looks like it will block the Telstra building from the Southbank side and will block the BCC building from the Coronation Drive of the Riverside Expressway.
