This hobbit’s been keeping a close eye on the set at Wingate, in Wellington:

“there is quite a bit of construction underway at Wingate. Part of a wall complete with arches has been erected. All about the set are bits of wall, stairs, arches etc, made of timber frames covered in polystyrene blocks painted black. The set looks like it will be much larger than any other set that has been erected at this site. I wonder if this set will be part of Minas Tirith? We wonderssssssess, yess we doesss.”

Thanks for that!
