It hasn't been decided where to build it yet though.

you really didn't read the article or pay attention to whats been said about space based radio telescopes in other threads.

A reminder. Radio telescopes are not hindered in their observations like visual telescopes are. There is no need to base anything on the moon or space probes. having a relatively small dish on a probe is pointless when much better data is gathered right here at home without the expense and trouble of sending a probe out which clearly isn't going to get the same quality of signal.

Its good news for the UK, and for Jodrell Bank. It will be a very exciting project!
