“[Construction workers] have started [at] the Peel Street end and they’re working up to the central part of the mall,” he said.

“They’ve done all the groundworks, put all the drainage in, built up the area and they’re about to concrete that section from the middle back to Peel Street, so that’s sort of the first stage that’s underway.”
