Demolition work started on Tuesday (2 December) on the Moy’s End terrace at Peterborough United’s London Road stadium.
Council officials and representatives of the football club signed the legal agreement to start work on the stand back in October, following three years of talks.
The £5million project involves the construction of an all-seater stand and a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education centre for community use.
The work is expected to take around one year to complete.
Speaking at the signing of the agreement, Bob Symns, the club’s chief executive, said: “We are delighted.”
