The huge construction work next to our neighbourhood has been banging on for months now, and will apparently be continuing for 2 years to come! This huge pile-driver [left] appeared outside our back window last week and spent 4 days hammering pylons into the ground. It was so noisy I couldn't hear the music playing in my headphones Thankfully it has moved further away now and the din has dimmed.
We live at "A" below, and the circled buildings are what is being constructed. It seems like we ourselves won't be overlooked by the finished offices as such and, being on the second floor, we may not even be able to see the buildings over the wall which separates us from them. And, of course, we may have left China by the time it is all finished! But for now, it's noisy, polluting and very annoying.
