Can they really fit a stadium in there?

On another note i have not really understood why since we own all the land thst we have not re routed the road that runs around the west stand so it initally moves away from the corner of south and west stand and then circles back. It would leave a more rectangular space behind the west stand possibly for expansion or other and would only marginally affect to use of the duffy site?

We don't own the road.

No you misunderstood. I mean move the road so it follows you red line yes but turn back so it runs parallel with the west stand and on to the same roundabout. Through the s of supply and i of construction on your pic. The road only affects BFC and the land of the duffy site

I think you are describing the current alignment of Lionel Road South.

If not, then please submit your planning drawings.

You mean put the road on the land behind the West Stand on the other side of the current road which is due to get a block of flats built on it? Might that not be something the (you must think) morons running the club may just possibly have considered and rejected as just having the teensiest impact on the viability of the whole project.

As the road is now closed, we might be able to build over it and tobsquare the West Stand off.

Probably not worth the cost though

This thread title really confused me as I thought it meant move the whole stadium South - would be a shame to get rid of the express tavern

Uk Steel Supply and Fabrication I think is in the area known as the Duffy Site , this was original earmarked for another Tower Block

The road is open to cyclists and pedestrians.
Yes but cyclists and pedestrians dont need a whole road and are often routed through covered, protective walkways during construction works so that they are safe from falling debri

I reckon that will make a lovely pub with loads of outdoor seating when the marketing suite goes. Home fans only.
Give EcoWorld a call, see if they’re interested in a refit and leasing it to you!

Personally, I preferred the days when we used to chat (and get shot down) on the GPG about expanding the North Stand over the rail tracks to get a 25k capacity. Now THOSE were the days 😍🐝⚽

Have you walked down that road on a match day? You think a single pavement will do?
