Stadium will be on time: Farry (page 5)
By Wilma McCorkindale
Carisbrook Stadium Trust chairman Malcolm Farry, under stern questioning at a meeting Monday, assured councillors the Forsyth Barr Stadium would be finished on time, on budget. Farry said rumours that the stadium was three months behind schedule were nonsense when the subject arose at the Dunedin City Council (DCC) finance and strategy meeting.

Dave Cull said the trust report was “manifestly at odds with reality” and he would vote against the committee accepting it.

Farry said the October critical path had now been superceded by Hawkins Construction Ltd’s critical path which would probably not go public to avoid nitpicking around deadlines not being met.

A century on (page 15)
New Hocken exhibition depicts Dunedin in 1910 and 2010
By Gavin Bertram
In 1910 there were a mere 440 students at the University of Otago; today there are almost 22,000. The gender split is in favour of women, whereas in 1910 they were a fraction of the student population. This is just one of the huge changes Dunedin has seen over the preceding century, a subject broached by the new 100 UP exhibition at the Hocken Gallery.
