Legends walkway `will be ready to
Concerns over the construction of the legends walkway at St.George-Illawarra's northern base, Oki Jubilee Stadium, were yesterday put to rest.
The commemorative path at the back of the ground's western grandstand was originally meant to be opened last year but was delayed several times.
Return To Kogarah, a supporters group which led a push to get St.George Illawarra back to the venue after a controversial three-year stint at Aussie Stadium, raised concerns about the legends walk being finished by the March 6 opening.
Jubilee Oval Community Appeal (JOCA) promotions manager Frank Bates said there was still some tiling to be done but promised the grand opening would go ahead.
Bates said JOCA, Kogarah Council and the workers involved in construction would have the project ready "come hell or high water".
"It's coming along fine, it's on schedule," he said.
Bates said the 15 living Dragons legends would be in attendance with the 16th member of the group; the late Brian "Poppa" Clay would be there in spirit.
