The progress on the ring road is extraordinary. You can see the changes everyday!

The computer generated images look very good, I just hope the buildings turn out like that as I know sometimes they change in order to cut costs.

What other buildings have the architects designed? Just want to be nosey and take a peek.

Does anyone know when other retailers to take up units will be confirmed? They must be fairly confident they will fill the place because of adding those further units on the car park.

The new ring road is almost completely in place now. I wouldn't be surprised to see its opening brought forward from the end of May.

Drove past the Island which will open into the ring road (Near Astle Park) this morning & they seem to be putting the top layer of tarmac on. The only hold up I see at the moment is Reform Street, which will form part of the new ring road, which is currently one way due to Road Works

Great pics Reiss. Although I pass quite often in the car I don't get the chance to have a detailed look. Sandwell Council confirmed on twitter today that negotiations are still ongoing with new tenants but they hope to announce them very soon.

The new ringway will be opening on Monday.

http://www.sandwell.gov.uk/news/arti...ch_town_centre

Drivers and pedestrians are advised to look out for a new road layout and new signs and car parking in West Bromwich town centre from Monday's morning rush hour onwards (16 April).

Part of West Bromwich Ringway, between the junction of Bull Street/Walsall Street and New Street/The Public, is expected to close on Sunday (15 April) evening.

At the same time, the new section of West Bromwich Ringway will open.

Signs clearly directing motorists and pedestrians will be in place.

The new road layout, new pedestrian routes and temporary car parks are part of the new Tesco and New Square development.

Have just had a wonder round the outskirts of the site and the finished touches are being made to the new ring road. Line marking, sweeping up and removal of metal fencing etc.
