How's the progress on the new stadium? Is it coming along at last?

Unfortunately the inclement weather has delayed any progress these last 5 years.

Although clearly written for a greyhound readership this has to be great news for the Robins and their fans.  The new grandstand has similarities with the one at Poole, which although built 20 years ago, still provides an excellent facility.

Looking at the computer pictures, what the hell is that box with Abbey Stadium on it? So a few windows up top to look out of? No terracing in the front? Useless!

This is surely just some feeble knock up and no good for viewing whatsoever. Flat in front so three deep at best. Or is this the outside of the stadium and the ‘track’ is just the road to the stadium?

Gaming International’s Head of Racing Bill Glass said: “Although the circuit will be shortened, it won’t affect the run to the bend from the 480 traps. Effectively, we are losing the area behind the 480 traps so we will no longer have a 509m distance, which we never used for graded racing anyway. The plan is to continue to run over a standard distance of 480 metres by moving the winning line.”

Will this effect the position of the Speedway start/finish line and/or the positioning of the Referee's box?

There is no referee's box on that picture, alarm bells should be getting louder................

This is a significant change to the original plans, how can it possibly go through all the planning, etc. hoops that quickly to be started so soon??

Now there are residents in the new houses who can object to the stadium and delay planning permission, and with the speed Swindon Council works May seems extremely optimistic.

The picture does not seem to show viewing facilities for 700 as stated somewhere.
