Due to the size of the project it's hard to put an opening date on it but we'll be aiming for mid 2013.
Thanks for the interest.
A UKC Premiere Post will soon be submitted on the subject.
You could add to that; The wall will be well positioned to take advantage of the HS2 high speed rail line, offering world class facilities just 1hr 10mins from London.
Roll on 2033.
