Description: Ashton Gate

The plan of Ashton Gate’s complete redevelopment was divided into three phases. First phase is the demolition of Wedlock Stand (south), dating back to 1928. Ground beneath it has to be regenerated before building a brand new single-tier end.

Second phase will see a major upgrade to eastern Dolman Stand, while the third and most impressive is the main grandstand (Williams Stand), which will dominate the stadium aesthetically. It will also hold most of the new commercial infrastructure, vital to sustainable growth of both Bristol City and Bristol Rugby FC. Only the north end will be left mostly unchanged, integrated into the new bowl.

New capacity is expected at roughly 27,000, but many seats in lower rows are expected to be ‘rail seating’, easily transformable into terracing which would allow capacity increase.

The project is expected to cost £45 million and should last until 2016.
