Does anybody on here live locally to the ground , and can pop along and take a picture updating any work in progress.
I live 2 min walk, unfortunately having COPD I am in prison for the foreseeable future or the end of my life whatever comes first, but I am sure there is nothing going on.

Having a studio built in the back garden and have just had to fill in a form so the fella doing the patio can show it to the police in case he gets stopped in his Van.This is down in Whitstable.Good as far as I'm concerned.

I have a contact who is working at the ground in a portakabin on the surveying and architecture side and she has told me that work is still continuing.

Heard that the steel frame of the stand is going up or has started?

I have a photo from inside the ground showing work being done, don't know how to load it but the pitch looks in excellent condition.

It would be nice to see that picture if it shows the steel structure as that would be a good indication of progress.

It shows scaffolding, end of the steel frame and 3 workemen. If you let me know how to I would gladly put the picture on. It is from where the TV cameras will be Putney end in from the corner.
I have tried copy and paste but it didn't work.

The video on the previous page is brilliant & the new stand is very attractive given the horrible Lego world we live in. The problem now is it puts the Hammy & Putney ends to shame. Does anyone know if SK has plans to integrate the other stands into this new style?

A video was posted on Twitter today and there certainly wasn't any evidence of the steel frame starting to go up.

Do we need Felix back to project manage?

According to The Fulhamish Podcast and The F.S.T today, work is still progressing on the new stand and it's still hoped that the stand will be completed on time, though Covid-19 might have some future impact when it comes to getting materials and parts,
So some relative good news at a time when good news is in relative short supply.

Nothing personal, but, the FST and especially Fulhamish, don't know their arse from their elbow when it comes to the Riverside development, more so Fulhamish.

I'd imagine the FST get a bit more info, but, all Fulhamish do, is copy, tweet and repeat.

As the construction industry is continuing to work through the Virus and with less traffic on the roads I would expect good progress to have been made on the stand. Also recent weather has been favourable and the wok has not been inhibited by matches at the ground.

Latest info that I have is:-
Still piling.
Taking down the tv gantry and the hoarding to allow access from both sides.
I have a photo but it just shows the pitch which looks immaculate.

I've seen a few pics, it looks like they might be getting ready to excavate the basement out

Tom Greatrex , Chair of The F.S.T was interviewed on the Podcast, and I would take what he says over what you say every time,
Can I also add you come across as very bitter, are you ok ?

Not bitter at all, the FST are just puppets to the Club, told what they want here, and they relay it to the fans, Tom whatever his name is no different.

I’ve see / received more info about the Riverside development from other fans, or, people involved directly with it, than I have the FST, so, hardly talking out my arse!
