Carillion to begin Anfield redevelopment next week

Carillion will begin construction work on Liverpool Football Club’s main stand, the first phase in the Anfield stadium redevelopment, on Monday.

Demolition work on houses surrounding the ground is nearly complete (see video below). This will allow the stadium revamp to get underway next week, the club said in a statement.

Drone footage shows the demolition progress around Anfield stadium.

The £260m scheme received planning permission from Liverpool City Council in September.

The development will see an extra 13,000 seats added to the main stand - where Carillion is main contractor - and to the Anfield Road end, taking capacity up to 58,000.

Construction work is expected to be completed by the beginning of the 2016-17 season.

The project will also include a two-storey podium and an area which will become the new home for the Hillsborough Memorial.

It is part of a wider plan to redevelop the Anfield area, with a series of green spaces around the stadium also planned in place of the demolished housing.
