Hi

We were there last week and the progress is impressive. The actual building work is virtually finished and the builders are busy with the finishes. Old Hapoor have already been removed from the restaurant. The staff (unofficial) is taking of completion by the end of the month.

Sorry no photo's - the building site is restricted, but some very interesting building material is used.

I can't wait for the centre to open. More importantly I can't wait for the web cam to come online.

Pics taken this past weekend - the building is looking super! And the displays being set up outside look like they are going to be very educational. Cannot wait for the centre to open :dance:

I was there Feb 4th and 5th and it looked far from being complete, I guess mid year at the rate that the contractors appeared to be working. The exterior was either complete or very close to it, but inside had a lot left to do.

It appears that SansPark staff have apparently chosen not to provide updates even after the many requests, very disappointing.
