The major scheme began 18 months ago and will increase spectator capacity to 61,000. 

New drone footage captures ground level progress where a new “fan park” is being constructed, and the three levels above for hospitality lounges and home and away fans. 

The main frame of the new stand is now finished with steel frames, columns, beams and a 300-tonne truss in place.  

The 500ft crawler cranes used have now left the site, said LFC. 

And work is already underway on the exterior façade brickwork. 

SD Samuels cladding had been subcontracted by Buckingham Group to work at Anfield Road. However, it is understood it had not finished its work when it filed for administration in December, wrote Construction News.  

The new roof is being installed and the old one will be removed soon. 

The scheme will add 7,000 seats in time for the 2023-24 season. 

This is the third major capital build project by LFC in recent years, following the new Main Stand in 2016, and the opening of the AXA Training Centre in November 2020.
