Construction teams move onto city transformation site

Preparatory construction work has begun on one of Swansea city centre's biggest ever transformation schemes - the complex with a 3,500-capacity digital arena at its heart.


Work teams and excavators moved onto Wellington Street on Monday, August 6), to take the first physical steps in helping Swansea Council deliver phase one of the vast Swansea Central project.

By the end of 2020 phase one of the £200m development - either side of Oystermouth Road taking in the LC car park and St Mary's car park and bordering buildings such as Tesco, St David's Church and the LC - will have a stunning new look.

It will boast the hi-tech arena, beach park, digital plaza, "gateway" landmark bridge over the main road, new car parking, affordable private homes and new commercial space. Phase two will follow, bringing a mix of enhanced new retail, restaurants and leisure.
