Opinion
Access, view, toilets, pass; temperature, fail
By Warren Palmer – Dunedin
What has the Forsyth Barr Stadium become from the point of view of the disabled? This is my chief interest. I have been to four rugby matches, one Otago game and three World Cup games, each time sitting in the area set aside for the disabled in the North Stand. (As yet I cannot comment on the seating in the South Stand.)

Toilets overlooked for west stadium stand (page 3)
By Wilma McCorkindale
Liquids and spicy foods may need to be off-limits in the west stand of the new Forsyth Barr Stadium. It has no toilets. Dunedin Venues Management Ltd CEO David Davies said in a worst case scenario, Dunedin’s new stadium would have to bring in portapotties for big events.
