    work will begin on the slipway or work on the slipway will begin

    Hello everybody!
    Next, in June of 2018, work will begin on the slipway.
    or
    Next, in June of 2018, work on the slipway will begin.
    The preposition "on" means literally "on"; there is no hidden meaning.
    Will it make a difference if I use one word order or the other (please see the bolded sentences)?
    Your reply would be highly appreciated.
    Thank you.

    Either is okay. I like the first a little better.
    I am not a teacher.
