Over the last month, Queens Square has really started to take shape with six of the eight granite planters being installed and four Ginkgo Biloba trees being planted. The final planters and three more trees will be installed over the next few weeks. Paving has been laid across almost all of the western side of the square with new colours of white, red and black granite used around the fountain area, according to the approved design.

The southern side of the square has been completed including where the new paving meets the old at the end of The Martlets and works have started across the entrances to Brighthouse and Starbucks and Decathlon. All stores remain open throughout the duration of the works.

There has also been a huge amount of activity taking place underneath the square as the water feature’s plant room has been fully fitted out and the fountain was tested for the first time on 27 June. Over the next few weeks, the paving will continue to be laid eastwards across the centre of the square with work continuing in front of Starbucks, Poundland and Decathlon. LED lighting is to be installed underneath the planters to create a white glow and 'floating' effect after dark. The remaining lighting columns will also be installed.
