Eden Park's South Stand approved
The centrepiece of Eden Park's 2011 Rugby World Cup preparation has been given the green light.

The South Stand has been granted resource consent with the demolition of the old South Stand due to begin in August.

Eden Park Redevelopment Board chairman, John Waller, described the announcement as a "major milestone" for the hosting of the 2011 Rugby World Cup.

The stand will hold 21,500 spectators and is described as "the cornerstone" of the park's upgrade.

"It is the most time-critical element of the construction project, and so securing approval for the new design has ensured that the project remains on schedule," Mr Waller said.

He said Fletcher Construction has been on site for the last few weeks and the consenting green light means they can now start their pre-construction work.
