The steel framework for the first block of shop/restaurant/office units that will surround the town square in Bradley Stoke’s new town centre has been erected just weeks after The Journal reported that the first concrete had been poured for the foundations.
The block (pictured above and shown with a red outline in the plan below) has a distinctive tower at its western end, which will form one side of the main pedestrian gateway into the town square. A zebra crossing on the access road close to the new filling station will provide a link from the footpath/cycleway that joins the Three Brooks Roundabout with Manor Farm Crescent and The Hedgerows.
Planning conditions imposed by South Gloucestershire Council require that the two blocks on the south side of the town square be complete before the main Tesco Extra store is allowed to open.
Progress on the town centre development is rumoured to be well ahead of schedule, with unofficial sources suggesting a possible opening date as early as the first week of October .
