Work has now started at the Memorial site. There is a lot of preparation to start with, beginning with some remedial work on one side of the upright plinth that has not weathered so well. This will be followed by a general clean and polish along the surface of the rest of the plinth before the major part of placing the 'stairway' on top.

This is all going to take several weeks, so more information will be reported at different stages of the work in due course'.

As you will see from these photos, hoarding has been erected around the Memorial site so that work on the final part of the project can start next week sometime. It is still a very complex job and there will be different specialists on site during the various stages of work over the coming weeks. There are 2 windows in the solid green hoarding so that progress can be seen from the park pathway as well as from the tube stairway. If there are no hold-ups or set-backs it should all be finished and cleared up just before Christmas. So, let's keep our fingers crossed for good weather and for things to run smoothly. We will keep you updated on the progress from time to time.
