AT 9AM TOMORROW morning, the demolition of the Kingsholm Grandstand will start.
Workmen will pull the changing rooms out from beneath the back of the stand before removing the roof to leave the steel support structure.
So far Smiths, the demolition contractors, have removed four, 20-ton skips of rubble and Gloucester Rugby staff have filled a further four 10-ton skips after the ticket office and bars were demolished on Monday.
The temporary boxes will also be removed by Thursday night, leaving only the main Grandstand structure to be demolished.
Sean Roberts, Gloucester Rugby's Operations Manager said: "We are extremely pleased with the work to date and it is progressing quickly and efficiently.
"It has been an emotional few days because the Grandstand has a huge part in Gloucester's history but we are moving into the future and that is tremendously exciting.
"Tomorrow, major work will begin on the final phase of demolition before the site is cleared and prepared for the new build."
Gloucester travel to Oyonnax for the second round of the European Rugby Challenge Cup on Saturday evening, and Director of Rugby David Humphreys is expecting a big test from the French side, feeling that their league position doesn't reflect their recent performances.
Speaking exclusively to Gloucester Rugby TV, Matt Kvesic explained that his decision to extend his contract at Kingsholm was a simple one and that he was hugely excited for the future in Cherry and White.
Speaking after the 55-0 win over CA Brive, Jonny May told GRTV that he's delighted that the team's hard work is starting to pay dividends but was equally happy for his friend and team mate, Charlie Sharples, on what was a big night for his fellow winger.
Speaking to the local media this week, David Humphreys insisted that Gloucester are looking forward to kicking off the new European Rugby Challenge Cup against Brive on Thursday evening, although an unfamiliar opponent and a five day turnaround will pose a challenge.
