Everton expect work on their new stadium to start on time – this despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Liverpool City Council’s public consultation on the planning permission for a new ground at Bramley-Moore Dock ends on Friday and it is understood Everton do not expect any delays caused by coronavirus working conditions.
Liverpool Mayor Joe Anderson told the All Together Now podcast he did not believe the £500m 52,000-seater project would be delayed.
“The shovel in the ground isn’t going to happen for, at least, a couple of months, we may well be over a period where that’s likely to happen,” he said.
“And of course, a lot of people working in construction have less than people who work indoors. It’s a difficult one to judge but I would probably say I can’t see it having any delay at all, Covid-19 or Brexit.”
