BammBamm says

At the STS website, a conundrum appeared early this morning, about the stadium piles. True or false. Does this associate with the rumour last year that steel had already been stockpiled for the project…

Many of you will not realise that to obtain full structural strength, that the concrete needs to cure. Usually Portland cement is around 8 months.
