In the Telegraph article it says the proposed site is next to the dock offices next to the flyover. Good access from Lock hill roundabout and Railway Street under the flyover.

I am sure many people have mooted the docks in the past; and JF said there wasn't enough room for the ground.  

I know one thing, that car park is going to be blooming bleak in the winter.

However, I am happy to support the new ground either there or on Freemo.

What about access?,  There is no access off Riby square,  the only way through is via flyover or through side streets.  Humber street bridge is unsafe.
Huge congestion.  where are pubs and eateries?
Its a no from me


I actually saw plans a few years back for the bridge to be pulled down and a roundabout installed in it`s place?

I am still not exactly sure where they mean. I would think access would have to be from Riby Square with a new road layout because traffic has to cross the railway somehow. It is either that or entry from the Humber Street end and back round Marsden Road. The land behind the Dock Offices they mention is between the Royal Dock and Fish Dock One, not far from the treasured Ice Factory leading on to Fish Dock Road. If this means bulldozing some of the crappy old buildings there then do it! ABP probably thinks it’s a better deal than spending money on them.

There was a lot of correspondence in the GT, in the halcyon days before the Daily Mirror put a stop to such fun, about the name Kasbah. It was made up by some bright spark researcher, probably not even Grimbarian, when one of the self-appointed committees for saving all Victorian brickwork was making a submission for money. They couldn’t even spell it properly.  The cub reporters on the GT were not Grimbarian either and grabbed this to cut and paste into the Telegraph which still thinks there really was such a place.

Quoted from wiggers
Personally I believe it when I see it. The docks or freeman street both have appeal but it needs to be more than just a ground. We need things around it, bars, shops, restaurants. Middlesborough stadium is terrible, absolutely nothing there apart from the stadium.


Plenty of bars already down Freeman street. Most just need bringing into the 21st century though.

I understand there are a lot of solicitors in this area-would they have to relocate

There are some photographs showing it as going on Murry Street where the old fish pontoon use to be in the Telegraph article.
