Work has started on the greatly-anticipated development of Rodney Parade this week.
Work has started on the greatly-anticipated development of Rodney Parade this week as both Newport Gwent Dragons and Newport RFC look forward to enjoying the new facilities, which will include corporate boxes and a 300-capacity function room.
The first phase of work due to be completed in January is the re-development of the terracing being the Family Stand at the north end of the ground.
This will be followed by the removal of the Family Stand to accommodate supporters from the Argus Terrace during work on the new stand.
With supporters from the Argus Terrace accommodated in the Hazell Terrace and the regenerated terracing on the North side, work to demolish the Argus Terrace will begin in the New year with the new stand due to be completed ready for next season.

The new stand will be all seater replacing the current Argus Terrace.
There will be 2526 seats which will comprise 2382 in the main stand and 144 in 13 hospitality boxes.
At the northern end (closest to clubhouse) there will be a 2 storey function suite/club shop/ticket office and rceeption. The function suite will have 300 covers.
The ground floor will comprise reception/ticket office and club shop. The new stand will also comprise concession areas and bars on the ground and first floors in addition to the function suites.
Part of the plan is also to re-clad the back of the Hazell Stand, improving the view of the ground.
