Basildon's new market is taking shape as this photo shows.

Taken on a roof overlooking the new development in Basildon by Roy Davis who sent them into the Echo, the photo shows how the new market stalls in St Martin’s Square are progressing.

Once complete this spring all 46 kiosks will be in place with electricity and water, as well as pop-up stalls.

The relocation of the market from Market Square will pave the way for a major redevelopment of Basildon town centre.

It will be followed by works to St Martin’s Gardens and improvements to the area of the bell tower and church car park.

These works will complete the green link from the town centre to Gloucester Park via the new pedestrian crossing and boulevard.
