Excellent news about Stamford Bridge. I'm so glad as a Chelsea fan we're staying at the Bridge, I was never really keen on the potential move to Battersea. Regarding the design I think it's beyond striking and fitting for the area, a real architectural gem - maybe I'm slightly biased.

Fellow Pensioner here and I agree completely. It will be a beautiful stadium.

Network Rail picks VolkerFitzpatrick for £94m Meridian Water rail link upgrade

VolkerFitzpatrick has bagged the £94m contract to upgrade Network Rail’s West Anglia Main Line through north-east London. Network Rail confirmed it had awarded the contractor the deal for major track upgrade work on the line between Stratford and Edmonton’s Angel Road station.

The work will see VolkerFitzpatrick extend a third track from Stratford to Tottenham Hale and then onto a refurbished Angel Road station to allow the line to handle more services.

The upgrade will improve connectivity to the planned £3.5bn Meridian Water Housing scheme in Edmonton, which is set to deliver 8,000 homes as one of 20 proposed London housing zones.

When completed, the new railway infrastructure will support a four-trains-per-hour service between Stratford and Angel Road.

The third tracking of the line from Stratford to Tottenham Hale will be covered by Network Rail’s Control Period 5 funding settlement

Winners named for £500m London housing framework

London housing association Network Homes has selected its contractor partners to deliver a new-build programme worth £500m. The housing association has picked a 13-strong contractor pool to deliver major schemes over £20m.

Laing O’Rourke has secured a place on the major projects panel alongside a dozen other familiar housing contractors operating in London and the Home Counties.

Keepmoat and Henry Construction will also join the major schemes panel for the first time while Countryside, Allenbuild and Kier have dropped off the preferred list this time round

The framework has also opened the door to several smaller players with a lot covering projects worth up to £5m.

Network Homes is one of just seven housing associations in the country with ‘trusted partner’ status for development from the Government’s Homes and Communities Agency.

It manages over 20,000 homes, in 36 local authority areas, mainly in London and the Home Counties and aims to start around 1,000 new homes a year for sale and rent.

When built, it will probably be the most beautiful stadium in the world. I seriously can't think of any other that can rival it. Good job, Herzog & de Meuron!

Stamford Bridge looks amazing.

Just a tragedy it'll be Chelsea FC's new home. Awful club, wonderful stadium.

Beauty is, of course, entirely subjective . And it seems that this stadium is marmite........it completely divides opinion. Many love it and find it to be beautiful. Many others hate it and find it to be ugly and austere. Very few people are indifferent towards it.

Personally, I love its exterior. But I hate the view from above (the rectangle within a circle within an abstract form jars badly, IMO). And I'm a bit 'meh' about the interior bowl. So.......a foot in each camp!

But there's no doubt that it will be another outstanding stadium to add to the growing number of outstanding stadia in London. Come on, FIFA.....give London the first 48 nation World Cup. We can handle it!

The dislike of Chelsea's new stadium imo comes from some people who support rival clubs. Plus it seems a popular thing these days to bash Chelsea.

Disagree, I think most people can and do like/dislike the stadium due to its design, rather than simply the club that will reside there. Personally I hate Chelsea football club but I like the stadium (though I must confess I share JimB's sentiments on it). And bashing Chelsea is nothing new, I assure you.

It's the asymmetrical nature of the design that I dislike.

Give me even proportions & symmetry or death...

Coming from a Man City fan... that stadium is stunning. I love it and I love the brickwork. Very jealous.
