    I couldnt really say but there is an ola acces road on PX road called ?crook or something inbetween the traffic lights and the existing access road. Just after the electrical place. There is billboards there now but the road could easilly be put back in place. It leads right to the JKP site.

    They couldnt the new concrete has no rebar in it and is too thin for heavy traffic. The only rebal is short pieces just to bond the 2 slabs together.

    Thanks, I do hope they open up other access then, I was worried the front of the stadium wasn't going to be as grand due to lack of room, if they concrete right across it will look far more impressive.

    Just had a look on street view, and that Cranbrook Street does seem just a waste of space, especially as it goes right into their haulage yard...

    the posh concrete has now been sliced with a whisser the full width about every five yards, getting near to the first site entrance as you drive up, the concrete is the ordinary stuff, almost in front of the main doors of the stadium the finish to the posh concrete is very poor.

    Is there not scope for a different finish on top of the concrete near the entrance?

    The General Arrangement plan appears to have the concourse all the same material all the way round inside the access road to the car parking, it also doesn't suggest there will be access to JKP from the stadium entrance and that public realm is designed to allow emergency vehicle loading. But I can't find the correct address to post the link to the drawing.

    Concrete tends to be a top layer finish due to cost. But they could use it as a sub base for paving. This would stop weeds from growing through the cracks but like i said it isnt usually done this way.

    I see that a lot driving up and down the M6. The last section of the trailer can actually be removed or pushed back to allow it to carry an identical low loader & cab on the back. Looks very strange.

    It doesn't need steel to be reinforced. It will probably be fibre reinforced as it's quicker to work with and just as strong. The dowel bars do as you state. If it's a poor as you say it looks then it may just be an underlay for a finished product. I would expect the planners would have insisted on a quality finish as they have throughout the town centre.

    Was just gonna say this... most of the time when they do service roads etc in concrete the either have a synthetic/metal pin fibre already mixed in at the batching plant to save time, and is just as strong as having re-mesh, or the likes.... and the reason its been cut every 5yrds or so as you say!! is so the slab can move in the heat, so not crack when it expands

    Trailer on trailer (piggybacking) is done to save fuel you only have send one vehicle instead of two. They sometimes put a third one on top as well

    The manholes are the same level as the concrete.

    Really coming together now. Still struggling to visualise how the outside of the other 3 stands will look. That roof is pretty impressive and really catches the eye.

    Yeah the South Stand looks great, but it's really weird comparing the other 3 stands with it right now as they look so far from completion.
