See, this is why I hate the copy 'n' paste. When/where is this article from? I first found out about this here on Parkz. and since then it has been repeatedly delayed. So is this just some press release from way back then, or is it actually opening soonish? There is nothing on the South Bank corporation website....a link from where this info is from, or some sort of indication as to whether this is a new update, or old news would go a long way.

The wheel itself is up, gondolas have been installed, and light up at night time. I don't have a camera or phone capable of taking photos at the moment, but should do soon. Perhaps someone else who goes near Southbank may want to take photos?
