Bull Ring refurbishment begins in Wakefield

30 Jan 2009

The first stage of the Bull Ring refurbishment has commenced in Wakefield.

New paving is now well under way at the site, which the council say enables the public to get an idea of how the area will look once work is completed in a year's time.

Some landscaping work has already been completed at the Bull Ring.

Other work already finished includes plant room for a water feature, pits for trees, a drainage system and the installation of new drainage and CCTV system.

The council stresses it is still very much business as usual for firms located around the Bull Ring.

Councillor Denise Jeffery, Wakefield council's deputy leader and cabinet member for regeneration, comments: "The area is really taking shape and it's great to see work progressing so well.

"Once each area is completed, it will be re-opened for public use and the first areas should be finished during the next few months."

In other building projects announced by Wakefield council, an £850,000 centre was opened this month.
