File note: stadium infomercial in ODT today

Joy! A two-page spread.

The companies associated with the stadium build, nine months into construction, are telling us it’s “On track for 2011”.

Take their word over Malcolm Farry’s. Malcolm and the Mayor are still tightening nuts. FuBarr is also raising its head in the mentions.

The companies:

Acoustic Engineering Services
Anderson Lloyd
Arrow International
Beca
Brazier Scaffolding
Concretec
Delta Utility Services
Fletcher Reinforcing
Hawkins Construction
Paterson Pitts Partners
Populous
Sports Surface Design & Management
Stahlton Engineered Concrete
Stresscrete Southland
The Model Workshop
Tonkin & Taylor

You might’ve also tripped over the Rugby World Cup 2011 icing appearing either side of the stadium spread.

Luckily, a newspaper can’t blast you with the Jesus Jones ‘Right Here, Right Now’ (1991) single, newly announced as the cup’s ticketing campaign song. Such a lacklustre Feelers version; it’s beginning to saturate free-to-air television ad slots. When will the cup ‘anthem’ be announced?

Our very own rugby stadium. Er, times two.
Carisbrook RIP
