    all those that submit a tender will have their documents scrutinised with toothcomb for errors or discrepancies. If errors are made the costs can be expensive to either or both parties. So many groups wil have tendered and all will be interviewed regards there tender. You cannot just pick one and run with it. The client has a legal obligation to have fair play amongst those who spent a lot of time effort and money to win this job. If tenders were only due in 3 weeks back as you state then you will probably wait a while longer yet. There will be a preferred bidder and 2nd no
    doubt but they have to interview all that were invited to tender under a fair play system shall I state. You maybe told who bid for it but not the winner by the lady named in a previous post.
    Gallifordtry are doing the bridge and were due to start in march but I guess it's design and build if plans only recently submitted as I knew about it 2 month ago as I work for them.

    So why release a statement saying the next couple of weeks. Another delaying tactic.

    Don't get me wrong, I can't wait for the new stadium, it's just the way they keep the fans in the dark at saints.

    I want to see a new ground as much as anyone but why do they have to tell us anything, st helens provide a product, rugby league, we pay them and there team performs for us! Their team performs at a rugby ground, we dont have to go there! Stop stressing , keep watchin the team and the ground will be here, lookin all shiny and new before we know it!

    I was on Construction Tenders site the other day, there a big job going down in Liverpool that has a tender period of 2/3 years.

    The Saints stadium tender is still being looked at, and should be completed by the end of the month.

    As long as we all think we'll be in start of 2012 season, then why is everyone so up in arms.

    I mean, what does it matter we'll be playing away from home for something like 14 games next year that should be home games, and then the following year we are in a brand spankin new stadium.

    Get a grip.

    Would you be so lax if you were getting a new extension built on your house?

    Bottom line is we're promised a certain timeline. It's obvious that is, shall we say, optimistic. Then you propose the fans just shrug, shut up and stop moaning, as if this whole new stadium thing is none of our business, we are just consumers, take it or leave it.

    Is that really our relationship with the club? Are we just casual consumers of entertainment like cinema goers or someone who buys a computer game? Because that's the way the club is treating us. - We're in Widnes, take it or leave it. Or then again we might not be in Widnes, it really is not your business to worry your tiny little brains over, just turn up and pay your money and shut up asking nuisance questions.

    OK everybody some pictures of the chaos round the stadium site,

    first of all what they have done to the site so far


    Macdonalds roundabout looking towards sherdley , only a short stretch of road down to one lane


    looking up the hill towards macdonalds entering st Helens,from the bridge, there is aonly one lane closed coming IN, going up the hill seems clear


    some shots of the site




    looking past the site towards macdonalds roundabout



    Mining monument roundabout loking towards KFC only one lane closed halfway along the road



    towards macdonalds again


    and finally looking towards Tescos

    Road Closures? The only road that has been coned off Is The One that passes The Rear Entrance To UG Its the entrance the sand wagons used to feed the mixing plant.
