I took a trip to the CG during the summer of 94 when they were building the South Stand, took some pics. The roof was half finished and there were perhaps only 50 seats in place.

Good image here - it was a pre-fab, so everything just arrived like a lego kit.  You can see in this picture that they were able to work on multiple stages at the same time, so roofing work beginning before the stand was fully erected.

By comparison this stand at Exeter took 16 months to build just 5 years ago. At a cost of £3.5m.

There isnt enough room for any more stand as there is a road and railway line right behind it.

Oh it can be done, I doubt Exeter could have afforded the extra cost for that though, £3.5m for whats there sounds excessive as it is and taking a year and a half....drag that contract out!
