But as I said,that was for the World Cup plans. Many on here have already said (and I agree with them) that it was basically a sticking plaster. If you want to bring the ground into the 21st century then it requires a total rebuild of the West Stand and Kop, plus the purchase of the Wednesdayite car park and development of that as a mixture of car parking with office retail and entertainment complex plus hotel attached, all with a raise concourse above Penistone Road leading directly to the ground.

 

Brighton spent 93 million on the Amex for a capacity of just over 30k. The capacity of the redeveloped Kop and West Stands would be about the same so adding the other stuff in 100 million is probably close to the real cost.

 

Seriously wish I was a Billionaire who owned the club, I know exactly what I would want there and would do it in a heartbeat, just like Brighton's owner.

This can be done and has been done (and now dusted!!)

As I'm sure quite a few on here are aware Athletico Madrid did just this (over the road thingymajig) 4 lanes , just like Penistone Road really 

Note the river over the back.

Reckon had that not been there they would have gone back further ...

Second  photo is stock issue..

First  is off my phone 2 year ago whilst I was doing some work there ...

That road is really busy-  almost "motorwayesque"

Anyone any idea as to why the stadium was build at an angle and not parallel with either Vere Road or Penistone Road ?

There used to be houses on the stadium side of Penistone Road, where the club shop & car park entrance is now situated. Maybe it had to be built at that angle to avoid the houses.
