Golden Egg demolition is almost complete

Comments (3)

THIS is all that remained of the Golden Egg today.

Demolition workers have been cracking on with their efforts to remove the former greasy spoon from the King’s Square skyline.

The demolition job was definitely looking sunny side up after bad weather temporarily halted progress.

A walkway alongside Costa has reopened to pedestrians and scaffolding has been removed as a demolition team prepare to knock down the final chunks of the building.

Work will then begin on removing the rubble and clearing the area.

King’s Square will then see minor improvements carried out such as levelling the square out, repainting and installing some new seating areas.

It is hoped that more public events will be held there during the summer and Gloucester City Council bosses are teaming up with the King’s Walk shopping centre to co-ordinate their efforts.

The demolition was ordered by Gloucester City Council after it bought the building from landowner Aviva last year.

    It might be gone, but how many people are aware that the plans are to build on most of King's Square so that it becomes nothing more than shop-filled streets?

    Hurrah! If the rubble was left there it would be an improvement on how it looked before. Thank goodness that eyesore has gone. Perhaps things will start looking up in that area now.
