New Street Station May 2013 update

As we approach the first month anniversary of the opening of the new concourse at New Street Station 
work continues on the former concourse while commuters continue to use the new concourse adjacent to it.  Steelwork for the new John Lewis store continues to rise while work on the new Bullring facing square also takes place.

With approximately 18 months until the opening of the new John Lewis store the new store manager has been appointed,  New store manager Kim Lowe will bring a wealth of experience from her time in Glasgow and with the Glasgow Chamber of Commerce. 

Here are some pictures showing work progressing around the station from the 21 - 23 May 2013.
