Inspired by Red Squirrel's upthread news that work has begun on the new eastern entrance at Temple Meads, I had a brief plod down there to see if there was anything worthy of a photo.
There's not that much to see at present but there clearly is some fencing on the current new university campus building site around where the entrance is to be located.  It doesn't show very well on the photo that I've attached but it's just in front of the green metal girder structure that can be seen.  I've no idea what that structure is but it looks like it has a degree of permanence as its anchored in a concrete base.
There's no sign of any activity in the station underpass, the illustrative hoardings are as they were previously.

Edit:  I've just realised that I've posted this on the incorrect WECA» (West of England Combined Authority - about) Passengers thread.  Is it possible for admins to move it to the "Temple Meads Redevelopment" thread?

Might be. We'll see...

I noticed today that KwikFit has closed but haven't seen timelines on when work on the southern entrance might get started

Bristol 24/7 has an article regarding a photo opportunity at the new campus entrance for assorted individuals and politicians linked to it.

Tenuously linked in some cases. Marvin has had little to do with this project beyond cancelling the Arena that was going to be next door. This could be his one last shot at getting a photo dressed in orange before he departs to - who knows where? Barra Mac Ruairi, who I think is the man on the left in the main picture, worked for BCC» (Bristol City Council - about) on the Arena project until Marvin, who had developed ties with YTL, cancelled it. He then went to work for YTL on their competing bid for an Arena at YTL's site at the old Filton Airfield. That might now be a dead duck for all we know, but Barra is not one to let the grass grow under his feet when there are new networks to get into.

"Network Rail bosses forecast that by 2030, some 2.5m people will be using the eastern entrance alone each year." - but they don't say how many will use it accompanied.

Noticed some of the new lighting going up on platform 7/8, presumably enabled by the cherry pickers parked a few metres away.

Severn Beach Line service arrived on platform 15 at Temple Meads today affording a great view above where the new entrance is being built there so thought I'd take a quick snap.

Incidentally, work started recently on the new student housing development the other side of the University of Bristol site.

500-ish students from September 2025 if to opens on time, although IIRC (if I recall/remember/read correctly) they'll potentially need to take the long way round for a year until the East entrance is open.
