Stadium for Cornwall to begin groundwork

It has been a long time coming for a new stadium to be built in Cornwall in the UK but after approval for public funding of the project was finally given in April 2018, groundwork is to begin imminently at the site in Truro.

With excavation crews scheduled break ground on August 13 it will be a welcome sight for professional rugby union side the Cornish Pirates and local soccer side Truro City FC who are among the partners of the project and its new tenants.

“To witness groundwork actually start on the new stadium just before the Cornish Pirates’ match with the Exeter Chiefs gives all of us a huge lift. A great effort has gone in by all concerned to get us to this point, it’s very encouraging,” said Robin James, Cornish Pirates’ chief operating officer, in a report by Cornwall Live.

The 4,500-seat venue, which could rise to 10,000, secured £3m (US$4.2m) in public funding as part of the overall £14m (US$19m) cost to provide a new venue for the only county in England without a professional stadium.

According to the report the partners on the build have appointed Cormac Solutions to carry out initial groundworks at the site, which will take four weeks to confirm conditions and then conduct further testing and analysis of the soils and water.

It’s expected that the next phase of building foundations and the retaining walls won’t be confirmed until this initial groundwork has been completed by around October.
