Southern Gazette (Victoria Park) - - Opinion -

IT is with in­ter­est that I have read how both the cur­rent gov­ern­ment and the for­mer gov­ern­ment have spent the past cou­ple of weeks cel­e­brat­ing the open­ing of the sta­dium.

The top three re­quire­ments to be checked in the prepa­ra­tion be­fore open­ing is get­ting the crowd to re­vert to a pre-1960 at­ti­tude of us­ing pub­lic trans­port or foot traf­fic to ar­rive and be seated be­fore the show starts, with re­fresh­ments and ablu­tions done.

My ques­tion af­ter all this re­as­sur­ance is have they not done a check on an emer­gency ex­it­ing of this tremen­dous crowd which, from what I can see, is to­tally re­liant on foot, crowded bus ports and crowded rail, with the re­quired buses and rail re­turned to re­move the crowd whilst emer­gency ve­hi­cles are brought in and are leav­ing.
