DCC website upgrade for stadium project information

The city council has updated the stadium project information section on its website. http://www.dunedin.govt.nz/council-projects/stadium

The WIC/Our Stadium webcam is also available at the council website. http://www.dunedin.govt.nz/council-projects/stadium/stadium-cam

From the stadium webpage:

[excerpt] “The Forsyth Barr Stadium has generated a great deal of debate in recent months. It is important that we are clear about our role in this development, not least because it is a project that depends on significant input from other parties. The other key parties include the Stadium Trust, the Otago Regional Council and the University of Otago.”

Also:

[excerpt] “The Carisbrook Stadium Trust has also been instructed to find either savings in the construction budget or additional funding.”
