    They may well use long reach demo excavators(like the one used at the Clarence)and I believe wring demolition was the contractor for that job.i maybe wrong but I don't think you will see any plant or equipment on the hallowed turf .

    Thanks for the insight - I'll look forward to seeing that in action - I assume the away end will have the Machinery during the duration of the work. I'm wondering how they will have enough access from Well St when they need to start taking away the demolition spoil and equally to start the rebuilding?

    Well at least unlike Mowlems they will be unable to cut down on their landfill costs by burying it under the BB, thereby effectively ruling out any future use of the space.

    I reckon about ten seconds - hit the corner with a sledgehammer and it'll probably fold like a pack of cards.

    And I reckon if they tried to trundle that kind of kit onto the pitch it would rapidly become the hollowed turf

    The asbestos removal could take a while. It has to be done by licenced contractors, and entails careful removal piece by piece, and bagging in sealed sacks. In addition to the roofing sheets, I believe there may also be asbestos used in the fireproofing of the steel structure.

    I had to have asbestos removed from my kitchen after it got flooded. Absolute nightmare of a job.

    Why? Sports stadia around the world regularly have heavy machinery trundling over their hallowed turf without much fuss. I'd imagine all you'd need is a decent protective matting and job's a good 'un.

    It doesn't sound like it will be a quick job then and not a case of heavy duty equipment banging it down in a few days

    Yep, white protective suits, breathing masks - the whole nine yards ! No doubt Pate might be unhappy that it won't involve heavy equipment and Tis having to lie in front of bulldozers etc, to prevent them encroaching on his pitch !
