Arsenal Football Club has today reached the half way stage in construction of its new 60,000 capacity home, Emirates Stadium, which is on schedule to be completed by August 2006, in time for the start of the 2006/07 season.

Since construction commenced in February 2004, an amazing 2,159,820 man hours have gone into building the stadium so far. This would amount to one man working on site non-stop for an incredible 89,992 days or 246 years and 6 months. There have been over 3,000 workers on site since the project began, with a current average of 935 construction workers per day.

A number of major construction milestones have been achieved to date; a £60+ million Waste and Recycling Centre was built at Hornsey Street, N7, to replace the old Ashburton Grove Waste Transfer facility situated on the new stadium site; two pedestrian bridges, 14 metres and 22 metres wide and weighing 360 and 1,050 tonnes respectively, were positioned along the eastern edge of the new stadium; and both the north and south sections of the roof structure, amounting to over 3,000 tonnes of tubular steel, were successfully lifted into place in December 2004 and April 2005.

yip. in the first picture you get to see Highbury and wow! look at the size of this stadium compared to it.

this Staduium too.. i think it can hold about 15000 more than Highbury can.

And thats the half way point completed. so it looks like they are in course for getting it done in the timescale they have but its looking really good!

I've always thought Highbury was a cack-hole. The pitch is the smallest in the Prem, you sit too far away from the pitch in certain places.. Outside the ground and the facilities are pretty poor aswell...

yip. i know what you mean.

when you see highbury on the TV, the camera is always too low and too close to the ground in my opinion.

But.... i think staduums are part of the team, its hard to think of arsenal not being at Highbury

The world is full of changes, but looking at that first pic it isn't as if they have moved a million miles away. It's right on Highburys doorstep lol..

yip. it look like maybe only 1 or 2 miles away.

and thats good for the fans, rather than a huge journey away.

whats going to happen to highbury?

Highbury holds 38,500 but Ashburton Grove is going to hold 60,000 fans

Its not a cackhole, but very small. We have to have a special grant to play in the champions league beause of the size of the pitch

It's a terrible pitch! The atmosphere is not the best at games either.

This stadium has gone up quick, Wembley take note.

I'm not being funny but in the 30 years i have been to away games up and down the country, for such a big club like Arsenal it is a cack-hole.

Oh yeh it is and im not saying the new stadium is going to be crap, infact its going to be absolutly amazing. But as an Arsenal fan im bound to be a bit biased, watching your team on a small but amazing playing surface, nothing beats it

By the looks of it the new stadium is going to be amazing, an improvement ten-fold. I shall be making the trip down there to see what it is like. Should be good seeing West Ham grab 3 points in a new stadium!
