Work had to come to a halt last week as New South Wales suffered from excessive rainfall. Western Sydney Stadium's future field was filled with brown, muddy water, causing construction to stop.
Late last week New South Wales suffered from major rainfall, with local flooding experienced in various areas. These include the Western Sydney Stadium construction site, which to date has been progressing as planned.
Helicopter footage from the area by 7 News Sydney shows muddy water covering the central part of the stadium, where the field will be in 2019. While work has been put on hold, there is no news of potential delays caused by this issue.

Progress reports suggest the project is on schedule for delivery in 2019. As we're just a year into construction (groundbreaking on Sept 24, last year), the entire upper tier's precast structure is complete, while roof – including the membrane fabric – is largely in place as well.
Below you'll find early September photos from the $300-million project, future home to Parramatta Eels and Western Sydney Wanderers.
