Peterborough United begins Moy's End demolition

Demolition work has begun at Peterborough United's stadium on the Moy's End stand, one of the last remaining terraces in professional English football.

The Moy's End stand demolition work should be complete by Christmas 2013 and is expected to be replaced by a new 2,500-seat stand, which should be built in its place by summer 2014.

Peterborough United Stadium owner Peterborough City Council signed the legal agreement to begin work on the stand in October following three years of talks with representatives from the football club.

The demolition and regeneration project, which is expected to cost around £5 million, involves the construction of an all-seater stand, a feature that has become compulsory in the Premier League since Lord Justice Taylor's report on the Hillsborough disaster in 1994.

Council officers for Peterborough City Council also plan to construct a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education centre at the terrace end as part of the stadium's regeneration, for which the Moy's End demolition is the first phase.

Speaking at the signing of the legal demolition agreement in October, Peterborough United football club's chief executive, Bob Symns, said that the club were "delighted" about the project.
