Typical that they make progress just as I come home. The last few days I was on campus were a complete pain with the square, as they blocked the entire thing at times.

Will see it when I head back next week.

Ohh well, that's something to look forward to. I just hope that these slabs don't crack as quickly as some of the early ones they put in did...

The stairs down to the underpass have big boxes above them as if something is going to be put in later. I'm wondering if they'll put TV's with info on them in there, or something with information about bus times...that would be cool.

Aww, I didn't realise you hadn't had the square/underpass open whilst you've been here. They have been working on it such a long time!

I didn't mind the stop being at the library - it didn't make much difference - but it is nice to be in the underpass if the weather is bad.

I just want to see it finished before I leave - to see what all the time and money was spent for.

i saw it at an open day, this time last year. and wondered where the hell those stairs went. me and my mates thought it was scary and we dared one of them to go down.(so childish :P) haha

Some of it looks rushed. However it did need to be done for summer, where else you going to sit in the sun between lectures?

Does anyone know if the green/blue glass pane bits light up at night?

I didn't notice them when heading for the bus at night but they might not be because it's the holidays/maybe they're not quite finished yet.

It looks nice. I was sat out there this morning. But, I am not convinced it was worth all the hassle of having the square closed for nearly 12 months. Oh well.
