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."
