Carillion fed up with Reds' stadium

CONTRACTS MERSEYSIDE

THE BOSS of Carillion's construction arm has said he has no idea if the firm will be building Liverpool Football Club's new stadium.

The firm was in pole position for the job when it was named preferred bidder for the £70 million scheme two years ago.

But plans for the 60,000-seat stadium have been held up by planning wrangles and a near doubling in cost to £130 million.

Carillion construction services executive director Roger Robinson said: 'We have been paid for our services but we're not holding our breath.'

Planning has been granted but there are doubts over whether Liverpool can afford it.
