Florentino Perez made a huge call to prioritize the redevelopment of the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu in favour of strengthening the Real Madrid squad, but it was a decision made in the interests of the club from a long-term perspective, and as construction continues we’re starting to get a first look at the brand new logistics tunnel inside the stadium.
The novelties of the structure continue to fascinate passers by with spectacular beams supporting the new roof, and the overall idea is that Los Merengues’ home becomes more efficient, comfortable and sustainable.
Images of the structure have highlighted the logistics tunnel that is practically finished, although there are now many months of work before the tunnel is fully kitted-out and usable.
One of the conditions laid out by the Madrid City Council to give the green light to the stadium redevelopment, was a need to create a space for logistics, maintenance and the unloading and loading of deliveries.
All goods that need to be moved into the stadium will come through this tunnel that is placed next to the car park, whist it also aims to give access to the pitch, which is why a folding stand has been created.
Match days will be much less congested in terms of trucks, buses and mobile television units, with all those vehicles being able to be hidden in the new car park.
Team buses used to enter the stadium through Padre Damian street, but with the new development they will do so at the corner of the street with Concha Espina, next to the Plaza de los Sagrados Corazones.
The buses will directly enter through the underground car park facility, and the work around other areas of the stadium will continue from this point, and the goal of opening the new stadium is getting closer.
