Sixways Stadium, home of Worcester Warriors, is undergoing a huge summer revamp with an exciting £8million redevelopment of the East Stand taking place – and the change is already noticeable!
Work is well underway on the latest facelift of the club and this week the progress has seen:
Work has recommenced on the new road layout and entrance to the Sixways complex. Smite Lane has been closed as the ties-ins and levels are managed at either end of the new road system. Cabling has also gone in fully around the new roundabout and the columns installed for the new street lighting. Signage has gone up on both directions and this aspect of the development is now scheduled to be fully complete at the end of July.
The Sixways Stadium pitch continues to develop with the new grass seeds coming through and drainage in front of the West Stand is complete. Temporary water measures have been installed to allow further growth of the new pitch.
The East Stand continues to take shape now the entire roof structure has come off. Piling is now complete behind the length of the stand and the corner block work should also be complete by the end of this week. Ground work for the extension in the South East corner is well underway and the steel construction for the extra back four rows of the stand is in.
The Indoor Training Centre is having a radical summer facelift following the damaging floods of last July. The pitch indoors is being totally re-laid ahead of the Warriors return at the end of the current month.
