The Bearpit Works


Since April, works have been under way that will change the feel of the space. A new paved surface is being laid. There will be some changes to the layout of the raised areas, new lighting, and there will be steps down into the space from a new walkway/cycleway round the edge at road level. The ramps and subways will be retained.

The work is being completed in phases, with the paved area for the Food Hub units being completed by July, enabling the trading to restart. The rest of the paving will follow, and the walkway/cycleway. It had been hoped that it would all be complete by the summer, but a reassessment has led to a projected end-date of mid-December.
