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

 

 

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?

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.
