As sad as I am to see the end of Carisbrook, the new Dunedin stadium is exciting. If I was a ratepayer I might have some concerns over the cost, but a well located stadium does make a huge difference to a city.
Wellington would not be the place it it today if the stadium had ended up in Porirua. The location at the Railway Station is perfect.
Likewise the location of the new stadium in North Dunedin, within easy walk of 20,000 students is a big plus.
As most will know, it is going to be a covered stadium (one could do that with the cake tin also if one had a big enough bath plug), and that should help fill the seats on cold winter days.Tags: Dunedin
