Call me impatient!! but exactly when will the construction of the new bus station proceed? apparently it was early 2018 (well that was the last time we were re-assured). As we move toward the 2nd quarter of 2018, all is still very quiet on this front. Doubtless plenty going on behind the scenes, but it's construction actually proceeding that delivers a bus station and not endless meetings! HMRC is proceeding rapidly - BBC is close to being handed over for fit-out - Central Square No. 2 will be occupied later this year. So 2 years from now 4 to 5,000 more workers will be back and forth to this area. The bus station will probably take 18 months / 2 years to complete so I'm really hoping that we see activity very soon? Anybody in the know like to give us an update?...

The Custom House Premier Inn tower is starting after Easter.

Just down the road, the big Watkins Jones one on Hope Street....God knows! Anyone know anything on that?

Comment from Russell goodway's council report....
'Significant progress has been made in the past month in connection with the creation of the metro Delivery Partnership and following an extra ordinary meeting of the Council's Cabinet on the 28th March 2018, the leader of the county council will make an announcement on behalf of the partners regarding the commencements of work,

Encouraging. Maybe this announcement will have a commencement of work for Cardiff Central station revamp too?

Well that's good news - I hope it's pretty much an immediate start, looking forward to seeing what the latest actual plans are :o
