and Hove Albion - Falmer Stadium
New Year, New Stadium
Just a quick Falmer update:
I went and had another look
last Tuesday (2nd Feb). Things appear to be
ticking on quite nicely. Lots of work is being done on
the station, to get to the Brighton University site you
now have to climb probably the most dangerous set of temporary
steps you’ll ever be on! Not sure what they are actually
doing with it though – it will be interesting to see how
they expand it.
to the football ground. Obviously, progress has been a
bit slow, as since our last visit the weather has been
shocking. Snow, Christmas and pissing rain have delayed
things a bit. But there’s been a lot of work done digging
out the land where the Uni buildings previously were.
Finally, it looks as if work is being done on the foundations
of the West Stand. Also, the funny looking South Stand
(where the away supporters will be) is at last being added
to, and it should resemble a football stand quite soon.
has it that the arch will be erected at the end of next
week so the crane can bugger off to the Olympic Stadium
(which was visible from Leyton Tube station at the weekend
and looks fantastic). Hopefully we’ll have a few photos
of that when it goes up.
though, here’s a few images taken from opposite the East
Stand – fortunately, one of the blue boards surrounding
the site had fallen over, so there was no need for stepladders
to get these photos! Sadly though, they’d stood it back
up by the end of the day.
keeping an eye on this in the next few weeks – it shouldn’t
be long before we have something that resembles a stadium!
