Quote from: Somerset County Gazette
Initial construction began at the site on Monday, May 20, which has seen the closure of the main car park.

With the site compound starting to take shape, actual construction work is due to begin later this Summer and is set to be completed in spring 2020.

A temporary replacement car park is being provided on the opposite side of the station, as part of the phased construction process.

It would be nice if there was some direct walkway across the firepool area so the station had a direct path to the cricket ground

There are plans for just that. Subject to the former cattle market site actually attracting a new developer. The original one pulled out, and the Conservative led council responsible for the Firepool fiasco are no more. Here's hoping the new LibDem administration can move the project forward.
