That's weird... they moved the entrance ramp.
Why? It is very common to see the ramp moved. The reason is that the need to excavate down to the full depth all over the site and once they have excavated all of the site except the area below the initial ramp they create a new ramp with "fill' and excavate the initial ramp area. Sometimes they then move the ramp back (now using one made with fill) to the initial spot.

Is that the full depth? That's 13 meters down from grade? It just looked too shallow to me.
