A giant mound of earth is being piled up at Marble Arch to create a viewing platform for the summer, and they’ve set up a webcam to watch the progress.
The Marble Arch Mound is due to open to the public on Monday 5th July for six months, giving people who climb up to the top a vista from next to Marble Arch across Hyde Park, Oxford Street, Edgware Road and Park Lane.
The local trade group, Marble Arch London BID has teamed up with Multivista to put a live webcam on top of a nearby building to watch the construction.
Not much has happened yet, but webcams over London are usually interesting in their own right.

Marble Arch Mound is expected to host 200,000 ticketed visitors to go to the top, and includes an exhibition space inside the mound.
This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
