No temporary stadium when National Stadium is demolished
By S Ramesh, Channel NewsAsia

SINGAPORE: There are no plans to build a temporary stadium in place of the National Stadium at Kallang when it is demolished for the building of the new sports hub.

The Acting Minister for the Community Development, Youth and Sports says Singapore also does not need an intermediate size stadium for the moment.

Replying to questions in Parliament, Dr Vivian Balakrishnan stressed what's needed is the optimal use of the existing regional stadiums in Singapore for sporting and other activities.

He said: "The Ministry will work to ensure that the facilities are affordable. But having said that, you also have to bear in mind that at the end of the day someone still has to pay for it. It is a question of how much the user will pay versus how much you want the taxpayers to pay. Our prime focus should be to get the overall cost down and we can do that best by running things cost- efficiently."

As for the sports hub, tenders will be called next year and construction start in 2007.

It should be completed by 2010.

Five...not four.

It will be a logistical nightmare for every NDP while this construction goes on then.

The padang is only held for once of the four years.
Haha...provided it is indeed at the padang.

What if they decide to do the roving NDP thing as they have done years ago?
If Singapore wants the olympics, it needs a stadium about 80,000 to 100,000 in size...
I think a uni undergrad can come up with a better design lah.
Oh chey I tot the design come out liao. Anyway maybe the stadium will be like the inverted design of the indoor stadium...with convex roofs so that the whole thing is shaped like a bao. :D
Tot its the PAP style mah....they come up with the asking for construction company to build. :D
How about one which looks like ang gu kuay?
Hmm...the one in KL is 100,000? Wah we can forget about hosting the Commonwealth then. :D

Actually I often wonder...why cant they somehow use the wonders of technology to build a stadium which can grow in size when needed?
Hm....then all they need to do is build one now which can odd on modules like lego bricks loh. :D
