Contractor Chosen for new Stadium

Barr Ltd have been put in charge of building the 10,000 all-seater Community Stadium on the northern outskirts of Colchester.

Cllr Brian Jarvis, Portfolio Holder for Renaissance, said: 'This is another major step towards making the Community Stadium a reality.

'Now that we have selected a preferred contractor we will be giving an immediate instruction to move forward with detailed design issues.

'Although we cannot let the full building contract until other hurdles are overcome, this will keep up the momentum so that Barr will be ready to start work on site as quickly as possible.

'We are all looking forward to the final bits of paperwork being completed so that the contractor can move on site and begin building what will be an important facility for the whole community.'

This decision will be actioned once the council's usual five day call in period has passed.

Can anyone tell me why the new stadium will be built before there is a road leading to it???? More madness, or does it make sense?
