AN Altrincham-based construction company has begun work on Altrincham Football Club's new community sports hall.

The £75,000 facility will be located next to the main stand at the club's Moss Lane ground and will provide a venue for Alty FC's community charity, including soft sports, community events and functions, as well as providing a new match day bar and improvements in the changing facilities under the main stand.

Work on the multi-use space is estimated to take 22 weeks, with the scheduled completion in late November.

Appointed following a tender process, McGoff & Byrne will manage the ‘design and build’ and fit out of the project and will be responsible for delivering the completed building on time and within budget.

The firm will manage the project from its Broadheath office, but will also have a presence on site at the football ground to supervise work on a daily basis.

Declan McGoff, operations director at McGoff & Byrne, said: “Our work takes us all over the UK and internationally too, but we are always pleased to win business in the North West and especially happy to help another local business with a construction project that will ultimately help secure the future of the club and enable it to continue to thrive in Altrincham.

"We are delighted that Altrincham FC has done so well in achieving promotion via the play offs and hope that they can look forward to a great season in 2014-15.”

Yet, despite years of community campaigning to the council, there's still not a pedestrian crossing in Moss Lane to enable people to cross to Altrincham Football Club stadium safely - including to use their new community hall.

Maybe if people used the green cross code , money that the council doesnt have wont need to be spent!

If you really want a crossing , pay for it yourself , sounds harse but where do you expect it to come from?
