As part of the city council’s City Centre Vibrancy Programme, the second phase of works began on Monday 11 January, 2021.

These works, which followed Phase 1, the demolition of the former tourist information kiosk, tree retention and reinstatement works will provide a new public realm across Cornhill Square, and are expected to be completed by summer 2021. 

Cornhill Phase 2 will significantly upgrade the existing paving and include street furniture and associated drainage works to the quality standard of the recently refurbished Cornhill Pavement immediately to the east and improve connectivity between the Transport Hub, regenerated Cornhill Quarter and the High Street.
