Sussex cricket stand waiting for safety signs

A new stand at Sussex County Cricket Club will be open for spectators to enjoy games during the new season as soon as safety signs are put up.

Construction on the £8 million stand, which can hold 1,700 spectators, began in September last year, but will not be opened until safety signs have been installed.

This meant that it was not in use when Sussex faced Lancashire in their first game of the County Championship, the BBC reports.

Sussex chief executive Dave Brooks said the stand would be open by May 8th.

"The South West stand is fully erected but will not be open until 8 May, because we have to get all the safety signs up," he told the news provider.

"It has an excellent elevation, the view from the top is absolutely fantastic and on those big Twenty20 nights, with 7,000 people under floodlights, it will create a wonderful atmosphere."

Spectators who enjoyed the match from other stands will have seen Karl Brown of Lancashire enjoying an excellent game, during which he scored 88, with the score at the end of day one 322-6 for Lancashire. ADNFCR-2754-ID-800513619-ADNFCR
