Rebirth Of Steelworks Site Hit By Rising Cost Of Steel

A major building project on the site of a former Scottish steelworks is to be delayed - because of increases in the price of steel.

Work was due to start on Ravenscraig Sports Centre in Motherwell early this summer. However, rising costs have forced the development to be redesigned to keep within budget. The delay will mean construction will not start until September.

The centre, part of the wider Ravenscraig new town project, has a budget capped at £29m, with £25m allocated to construction costs.
