Hello, and welcome to the latest OHSS blog, in which we bring you more news from the world of asbestos abatement. In this latest story from the Irish News, Irish Football League side Bohemians have announced that the discovery of asbestos in their new away-fan section may not be ready in time for the new season.
Following asbestos surveys of the site, the revelation was made, impacting the work being carried out to cater for 450 extra standing away supporters. On the Connaught Street-side of Dalymount Park stadium, the works form part of a total revamp of the building.
Discovery Made During Demolition
Once complete, the new travelling-supporter area will be able to house up to 4,290 fans, however, the discovery made during the demolition of old terracing puts the project behind schedule. As such, it's very unlikely to be completed before the club's opening home game against Dundalk.
Speaking about the issues, a club spokesperson had this to say "It is with regret that we have faced minor delays in the construction of our new away stand on the Connaught Street side of Dalymount Park. This was due to the discovery of asbestos in the area during the demolition process, which delayed the removal of existing structures and materials".
