Work is due to start on this in the next week or so. In order to begin the works the Capitol Centre's steel canopy needs to be removed so I understand this will be the first activity taking place before the hoarding goes up.

Good to see it starting, if a little later than summer 2021 as promised. I did wonder why there were grass mounds and picnic benches all over the area when I came home in July.

Hope we see more activity on the Canal Quarter masterplan this year. I don't think there's been anything since the initial application went in last May?

I know you have to start somewhere but I think this short stretch of open water is going to look a bit odd and out of place. Hopefully it won't be too long before it's extended.

I think it's best to think of it more as an elaborate water feature rather than a stretch of water. There's going to be a waterfall at the Queen Street end so it will be constantly flowing and won't be that deep according to the plans.

Some piles of heras fencing have appeared on the street today.
