Development queries kiosk to open
Demolition work at Drake's Circus
The shopping centre superstructure will soon start to emerge
A new kiosk is being set up in the centre of Plymouth for people who have any questions about the city's Drake Circus development.

The information point will be opened on Monday at the 60,000 sqm development which will eventually feature 45 shops, cafes and restaurants.

The kiosk will be open every weekday and visitors will also be able to see a virtual reality tour of the site.

The development should be open for business next autumn.

The transformation... does interest local people and visitors to Plymouth.
Councillor Tudor Evans

Leader of Plymouth City Council, Councillor Tudor Evans said: "People have been stopped in their tracks by the enormous scale and pace of the Drake Circus development.

"P&O Developments has installed this information kiosk because the transformation of a pretty ugly part of the city centre does interest local people and visitors to Plymouth."

Over 200 people are working on the Drake Circus site and the shopping centre superstructure will start to emerge over the next few weeks.

The council says between 95 and 98% of all materials removed from the site have been recycled.
