The Providence Place gardens project is behind schedule, and overrunning on cost,, but the good news is that it is planned for completion before the height of summer.

Completion of the works is taking longer than originally estimated.
Unfortunately delays from ongoing road works on the seafront, Edward Street and the Vogue Gyratory caused by a variety of factors has meant that the contractor has been severely stretched and unable to dedicate the resources to completing the Ann Street/Providence Place project within the originally scheduled timeframe.
The works should now be completed around June or, by the very latest, July. A revised programme of works (PDF 192KB) is available and more details are provided in the Project newsletter from April 2015 (PDF 390KB).
Rising costs has also meant that the works on the upper part of Ann Street will not be completed under the current funding scheme.
