I would think like most rules they aren't retrospective. So PO was built to the rules they had at the time. This new terrace is built to the regs in force now. Kirklees or any other council for that matter enforce the rules, they don't make them. I wouldnt want to see it rushed and have a serious incident which could see the ground closed.

Thanks for the insight, Ramite. I wasn't aware of the retrospective concept. Still seems a little crazy, though. Its ok for fans stood on ancient terracing to be placed st risk, simply because it was constructed in an era when current regulations didn't apply?

Sorry to disagree but am fairly certain that the rules aren't retrospective. The terracing should be of a certain standard today or it should be condemned. If a major incident with casualties occurred then I don't think it would be any defence to say "well it was ok when it was built".

Does that mean all the Dewsbury fans will have to have inside toilets installed in their rundown hovels??

If they did apply then clubs would be forced to upgrade the ground at massive cost every time the rules changed. Im guessing it's similar to energy efficiently in new homes, they have to meet certain levels but you couldn't apply it to 200 year old houses.

Sounds like you speak from experience piggy. Personally I have indoor toilets  both in my town and my country houses, and also in my Monaco flat. :blum:

At one time Post Office Road did have crush barriers. I am guessing they were removed due to health and safety because I do know the capacity was greatly reduced. So when you visit in a few weeks time you will have to sit in 1 of the 2 relatively modern stands or stand on the ancient terracing (the new stand is progressing but quite a bit to do yet). I wonder if all clubs within Wakefield MDC can say the same?

Sorry have to inform you but it will not look as if any further progress has been made since the last Home Game.

We are having severe problems with Barrier Fixing technology, the design of the handrails for the walkway at the rear
and the side rail load bearing capacity to stop people from walking from the Terrace on to the Grass Banking. In addition,
we have having a problem with the specification and soucing for the pitch side fencing - again to do with the pressure
loading ratings. I think we may have a solution to the major items (to be confirmed at a site meeting this week)and we will
hopefully order the materials after this.

The good news is that the new turnstile doors on the North Stand Side Block should all be finished this week - bet no-one has
even noticed the new South Stand Ones!

If I had more hair left, I would be tearing it out! I never realised at the start of the project that it would be like studying
for a Construction Engineering Degree when approaching retirement age!

What are the chances of the terracing been ready for the remaining fixtures this season ? Or would it be more realistic to maybe plan for the big opening on Boxing Day against the bulldogs ,weather permitting of course.Also looking ahead even more,how long in the future would work start on the Western terrace,would it be ready for 2015?

Do you think this is maybe WR's "Field of Dreams"?

Not sure that there was anyone asking for pictures of the unfinished terrace. I will be getting a live update at Sunday's game.

But terrace is looking very good.
