The redevelopment of Simonds Stadium has been delayed because of soil contamination, it was claimed last night.
Speaking on Channel 9's The Footy Show, reporter Damian Barrett said the contamination would set back construction and cost an additional $250,000.
No further details were available at the time of publication. Demolition works on Simonds Stadium's Doug Wade Stand started on January 16 this year after the State Government confirmed extra funding for the $49 million redevelopment.
Earlier this year, the football club said the builders were still working to a handover in May next year, which would not affect any home games at the Cattery.
