Five Ways in Edgbaston is one of the busiest roundabouts in the city but inside and largely hidden from view is a great sunken park...


 

 

 

 

The roundabout goes around and over the park, and the Hagley Road goes underneath.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just outside the roundabout is a beautiful ornate clock.

The Construction of 103 Colmore Row

103 Colmore Row has been a big hole for a while now but that is set to change. Daniel has only been able to get snaps through the gate but was delighted to be briefly escorted into the site and got some great photos. He was told some very interesting stuff by the lovely gentleman at the site who is one of the senior engineers on the project.

Daniel has only been able to get snaps through the gate but was delighted to be briefly escorted into the site and got some great photos. He was told some very interesting stuff by the lovely gentleman at the site who is one of the senior engineers on the project.


Usually this is the best shot Daniel has been able to get.

 

Once inside, the true size of the 4 floor deep hole becomes apparent!

 

One part of the original Natwest Tower is being used.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here the original waffle style floor construction of the Natwest Tower can be seen.

 

The original foundations of the Natwest Tower are being used for this construction, test holes have been drilled to check it's integrity and the central core has bee marked out ready for the start of this massive 26 story tower, it will be over 100m and is being built on the highest site in the city!
