Take a look at the first official shot of the new 7.7 acre Coronation Street site, currently under construction at MediaCityUK.
You can clearly identify Corrie's new footprint. With 19 different types of brick, seven different types of mortar and a whole heap of cobbles, the infamous street is taking shape! Whilst replicating the current set, the new set is bigger, allowing greater production flexibility.
Construction is expected to continue until the end of 2013. The programme continues to film here at Quay Street until we move to our new home at a date to be agreed in due course.
