It’s a sthole mate , apart from that Eigth wonder of the world at the top of the high street.

Sometimes I have the run the big lorry up to the new stadium & I have to lock the passenger side door to stop the crack heads from getting in the truck.

I play football literally right across from the stadium once a week. We've got a posh SUV now thanks to the missus and I'm always worried whether it will still be there when I come out.

The last time we got accosted by a crack head as we were standing around outside chatting after the match but this isn't too unusual. I'm hoping the redevelopment work brings a bit of money into the area as it really is a sthole and has been for years.

Still it could be worse, you could live in a whole city which is the same. wink

Workers at Tottenham’s delayed new stadium drank alcohol and took drugs on site, according to a report on the £850m project.
Industry publication Construction News claims to have heard first-hand accounts of workers under the influence of alcohol and cocaine while on the site of Spurs’ replacement for White Hart Lane.
Tottenham’s state-of-the-art new ground has been hit by delays in opening, with no date yet confirmed for Spurs to move into their new home.
“I’ve not worked on a site like that in a long, long time,” a source told Construction News.
“There were people off their heads, drinking cans first thing in the morning before going on to site and snorting coke in the toilets.”
Contractor firm Mace, that runs the stadium site, has moved to deny the claims.
“Mace strongly refutes the image of our project painted by these anonymous allegations,” said a company spokesman.
“The health, safety and well-being of everybody is, and has always been, a core value at Mace and any suggestion that our rigorous standards around best practice or drugs and alcohol had been broken would be taken extremely seriously.
“We carry out regular random drugs and alcohol testing to ensure that our rules are enforced throughout our supply chain. Any concerns about specific health and safety risks should have been flagged to Mace health and safety staff on the project.”

Tottenham’s new ground was meant to open on September 15, but health and safety issues have held that up.
Spurs have continued to play home games at Wembley where possible, and will host Watford in the third round of the Carabao Cup at Milton Keynes’ Stadium MK.
Unnamed sources have also told Construction News that mistakes have contributed to the delays at the stadium, with electrical wiring forced to be ripped out because air-conditioning units had not been installed properly.
“The new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is one of the UK’s most complex and innovative projects,” continued Mace’s statement.
“The club and the construction team are working diligently to complete the iconic stadium as soon as possible.
“Although these delays are obviously frustrating, once complete the new stadium is going to leave a fantastic, lasting legacy and will be a project everyone involved will be proud to be associated with.
“As you would expect, the number of operatives on-site has reduced as sections of the stadium have begun to complete, in line with our programme.”

This was discussed a few days ago so a bit late to the party. We have some people on here who work on site or know people who do. I am sure they can confirm or deny working practices on site.

My guess which I'd be pretty confident is correct is that it's a load of old cobblers.

I wouldn't be so sure. There was a vid posted a while back on SSC of a workman in the stadium doing a line of coke. It's bound to happen with a workforce that large TBH.

Fair enough but I think it's a long stretch from a couple of people doing it which as you say is pretty much guaranteed in any environment with enough people working in it to it's a party town and the reason the stadium is delayed is because all the workers are doing coke which is what is being implied.

This line that's trotted out does amuse me. It's not elfensafetee, it's just not finished. I cycle past it every day on my commute. Don't get me wrong when it's finished it will be awesome, but there's diggers, bulldozers and cranes outside, the steps up to the concourse on Park Lane are only half built (they only appeared this week actually), outside is literally a building site with materials and plant everywhere, etc etc

Health and safety! laugh

I took a video this afternoon inside the stadium at the top of the north stand & it looks bloody fantastic as i'm sure some on here will agree.

My boy is working there full time & he says that there is nothing going on that doesn't go on on other building sites.

It appears to be an ongoing issue at White Hart Cocaine.

But the whole area was still going to be under development for a good few years, so it will be a building site for quite a while.

You say that but the groundsman's clearly been letting Hugo have a go on his tractor.

Of course it's HSE! It wouldn't be very safe opening without the steps there, you'd have loads of people falling over and getting hurt!
