Drone footage shows work left on Mace's Spurs stadium

29 August 2018

New drone footage offering a bird’s-eye view of Tottenham Hotspur's new stadium in London shows how much work contractor Mace has left to complete before the £800m project is ready.

The video, published on 25 August, shows the site as a hive of activity with workers visible on nearly every section of the roof, as well as five tower cranes still erected and multiple telehandlers and other construction equipment at ground level.

Spurs have expressed their frustration at having to postpone matches scheduled for September and October due to the construction delays.

Earlier this month it emerged that the new stadium’s opening would be delayed after issues involved with critical safety systems.

Spurs' upcoming matches against Liverpool (15 September) and Cardiff City (6 October) will be switched to Wembley, as will an NFL match scheduled for 14 October.

A Mace spokesperson said: "Unfortunately, our routine testing of the critical safety systems has flagged up issues that need to be addressed before the planned test events can go ahead. It is extremely disappointing that – as advised by the Club - a further two Premier League matches and the NFL game will now be played at Wembley, particularly for Tottenham Hotspur fans, but I am sure people will appreciate safety is our highest priority. The club and the construction team are working diligently to complete the iconic stadium as soon as possible.

"Although these delays are obviously frustrating, once complete the new stadium is going to leave a fantastic, lasting legacy and will be a project everyone involved will be proud to be associated with.”
