Drone photos show progress of new Dons complex

New aerial pictures have revealed the progress being made on Aberdeen FC’s new £50 million stadium complex at Kingsford.

The drone photographs mark one year since construction began at the site, between Westhill and Kingswells. Work is under way to build a training pavilion, accommodation for groundskeepers and seven pitches which will be shared between the club and its community trust.

Once these are completed, Dons bosses will turn their attention to a number of planning conditions, including a footbridge over the neighbouring A944 road, which they must meet in order to break ground on the stadium.

As well as hosting games, the 20,000-seater facility will house a heritage museum, cafe, new club shop and memorial garden.

The new training facilities will feature a mixture of grass and 3G pitches, while one will utilise a “hybrid” surface.

It has now been drawn out and had floodlights installed around its edge.

Project manager Raymond Edgar said: “The grass seed has germinated and will be regularly treated with liquid fertiliser over the next three to four weeks.

“The pitch will then be ‘stitched’ in mid-August with artificial nylon grass fibres. It should be ready by the end of September.”
