There are 3 cranes now visible from inside the park working on Star Wars / Toy story and things do seem to be starting to ramp up. They will have to go full steam ahead to hit that deadline.
Information on the project team changes this week
LRCH and parent company Kuwaiti European Holding Group (KEH) have appointed Humphrey Percy, currently Group CEO KEH, as CEO of London Resort Company Holdings; Mike Morrison as CFO and Kevin Doyle as Development Consent Order (DCO) Coordinator.“This announcement reaffirms our determination to submit our application for the Entertainment Resort. After many months of review, revision and reappraisal we have a robust business plan for building a world-class entertainment resort in the UK and are ready to push forward. We are working closely with the local authorities, landowners and local community, as well as our other stakeholders, to deliver a global destination attraction.Source: https://blooloop.com/articles/new-leadership-team-london-paramount“I am delighted to be directly overseeing the plans for the proposed Entertainment Resort in North Kent and welcome Mike and Kevin in their new roles as CFO and DCO Coordinator, respectively. Having held senior positions at Morgan Stanley and WestLB AG, amongst others, Mike has a wealth of experience in property, business management and accounting that will be incredibly beneficial to LRCH. Kevin has worked on the project from the start, knows the team and the local area extremely well and played a key role in the delivery of some of the largest entertainment projects across the globe.
Not so far. There is nothing more concrete than 2018 yet, not even a month that I can find.
They had a press day (I think, my translation isn't too great!) and showed the construction on the 5th February. Good video with lots of views around the site and what the rides will be like plus is also shows confirmed pricing at the end.
There isn't much to see changing right now but this vlog gives a great idea of where the construction is going and give you an inpark layout of the new lands.
The only thing you can really see right now in the parks is the demolition of Streets of America.
There are trees are being planted to cover the backstage area of Avatar Land. The view from the park hasn't changed much recently and looks like smaller clean up jobs are now ongoing.
It looks like construction started on the Toy Story expansion in December 2016!

Does anyone have any more information? On the ground images?
LEGOLAND Japan released their "first to play pass" which they release as a special before they open. This means that pass holders can go to the preview events and have a year pass with special benefits by buying before the park opens.
Days and times of the preview events are...
So they are being very quiet on opening dates and a lot of people are starting to complain about their "early bird ticket sales" and the year passes they have already sold.
Found these photos from someone on a site visit this past week.
From the 28th January. Some Vlogs are reporting requests to stop filming the construction site so I expect we will start to see less of these videos.
The sheer volume of work going on here is amazing. In comparison to the Disneyworld site this is so far ahead I do wonder when we will start to see the same level of work in Orlando.
New update from 30th January
Detail is going on to buildings
Entrance is looking good with a lot of detail
Current Mount Krakatau status
Video from the 24th January.
More ride details from the official Instagram page and an indication of how far off they are being ready...
We are the day-to-day work toward a lot of work the staff together with the opening of "LEGOLAND®️ Japan". 90% completed Park is finally on the stage of the finish!
This is being reported on twitter but I can't find the official link to the page but I did see it temporarily the other day. Think they are just testing the website so might not be correct.
It's still on for opening June 1st. They put up an online calendar recently with opening hours (it was blank but started on June 1st) but now I can't find it on the website so guess it was just for testing.
New video taken yesterday and you can see water flowing on some of the rides already.
