It is possible to redevelop the SKD to the same capacity as the Main. Is it feasible? I doubt it - especially when you consider the properties behind and the geometry of the existing stand and the likelihood of needing to demolish and re-build the upper tier. Given it already has plenty of hospitality seating, where's the extra income going to come from to make it all feasible?

Solve that conundrum and then you might possibly consider how to get people out of their cars.

Why? Can't we just extend the upper tier, so it is similar to the new ARE stand, although a bit steeper?

Because the existing tier is very close to the maximum angle permitted and so an extension is unlikely to get 'safety compliant' views. I'm sure the detail explanations are all here somewhere

Thanks, mate. Although it would be nice to know if we can extend the upper tier under the same (permitted) angle, and what would that mean for the wieving lines ...

The Centenary Upper is very steep and the view from the back rows is shite, the roof means you can't properly see the far touchline. Everytime the ball goes high you play the guess where that will re-appear game. It's like climbing a mountain as it is
