There was worry that Wakefield was going to be left with a huge steel structure for years to come. But luckily this will not be the outcome. Meaning the huge developments happening in Wakefield right now will ALL be finished. There should also be a boost to Wakefield directly. With a price tag of £220 million pounds, you can expect a pretty good shopping centre. Hopefully this will bring new people into the city spending their hard earned cash. The new centre provides high street chains with yet more outlets to advertise their products. With plenty of high street stores in the centre of Wakefield either closing or closed, this is vital to recover what we have lost.
I know the country has just scraped out of recession, but this is another positive sign that a recovery is under way, albeit a slow one, but it is better than no recovery at all.
