Ashton Gate – design description
Reconstruction of the current Ashton Gate envisages completely new stands alongside the pitch (west/east) and a revamped south stand adjoining them. The only remote part would be the north end, changing little since 1994.
Plans are thought to be an alternative for Ashton Vale project, which still has unclear future. Bristol City assure that current venue may be revamped within three years, with the club constantly playing there.
