Work has started on the Clarence Road roundabout fountain in Windsor.
The fountain’s design features a semi-circular row of jets angled to spray water from the outer edge of the pool towards the centre.
In the centre will be a dandelion sphere fountain, made up of 380 nozzles to create a watery sphere measuring just over 2.5 metres.
Plans for the feature at the site were approved despite recommendations that it should be refused in January 2015.
It was originally recommended for refusal on the grounds that it would obstruct visibility and be a hazard to road users.
In the original application, advice from the Royal Borough’s highways department recommended the work should not go ahead because of ‘adverse impact on highway safety’.
Work began on Friday, January 22 and hoardings have now been put up.
A petition was set up to reverse the council’s decision but was not successful.
Information on roadworks.org states work will be completed on April 18.
