    me too. To be honest part of me wants to move in at the beginning of a new season rather than towards the end of one. That's in an ideal world though...

    The thought of playing at Widnes for a whole season next year is horrible though.

    I'd quite happily throw in a few quid towards accelerated costs for the builder to avoid playin in chemical town.

    When it comes to any kind of date to do with the construction industry, it is ALWAYS longer than expected. This is for announcement of contractors, date of plans submitted down to the actual completetion dates of the works. I dont know why the construction industry doesnt just add 2 months onto the end of any estimated date because then it will look good that theyve done it quicker than expected.

    I tell you now, there is NO WAY we will get to play a single game in our new stadium in 2011. It will be 2012 at the earliest.

    It was me who said the end of April, I still have the Email from the person in charge of the tendering process to that effect, I have sent another Email asking what the latest news is on the start date and contractor for the stadium, they dont always reply though.
    Got told this morning that the Lib Dem flyer for the local election is saying that ground work on the new stadium will begin in June, anybody verify this.

    Labour flyers say construction on the stadium has started. More lies lies lies from their spin machine. Why can't people proof read publicated documents. Even the infrastructure works can't be classed as the stadium works.
    Can't even tell us who's building it. You wonder why people get pi??ed off with government. Don't do themselves any favours with telling tales.

    Work has started on the stadium site, not on the stadium as you say, as far as the Government is concerned, building our stadium would have in the worst case scenario not have happened without a sympethetic Government or would have been delayed many months if it had been called in, good work by our local MP's
    Without the grant from the Northwest Develpement Agency (Government) could the club have found the extra money, by the way the Tory Party are getting rid of the Regional Agencies,

    I was quoting the flyer stating saints stadium construction started. We don't know what is around the corner regards the government in charge as it's the stage where all parties will spin to get in. Think we can only see in time what a Tory mob would do if they do win.
    I think the stadium with the backing we have would have gone through regardless of who was in the chair. But like most on here I want to be in the chair of a new stadium. As it is I have now given up on next season like some as having a home until probably the playoffs now but the later it gets the more chance saints won't want it ready next year as they will pay for it's upkeep whilst not being used so start of the season after is probably what will happen

    The NWDA money wasn't extra money. The Council are now paying less into the pot.

    The Tories will be no different from Labour in what they get rid of. It's called a trillion pounds worth of national debt.

    Be surprised if you do. Contract not yet awarded alledgedly so to get paper work sorted and men doing groundworks in a couple of week will need divine intervention.not to forget the size of site set up that will go in for the size of site. I'd guestimate mid June before it looks at the stage when you say at last it's starting.

    The Tories are not getting rid of the grant system, just the regional aspect, regions will not have a fair share of any grant monies availiable, it will be a "free for all" any money availiable will be gobbled up by the Home Counties.

    Councils do not put money in to help private developments, infrastructure yes, access roads trafic island etc.

    I just cant help but think we have had massive support for our new stadium from local North West MP's, even Mandleson went on TV suppoting us.

    The first big job to do is to fill in the Olympic size swimming pool which was under the batch plant and the lehr ends, it's massive. If you call work started being one digger on site for two half days last week, then yes it's started. By the way I work at JK Philips'

    You can say that again its one big concrete lake, it cant be seen from the road but that part of the site will be for parking, it shouldn't hold up any building once the warehouses are down.
