As is common in other stadiums, there are major movement gaps which divide the structural concrete frame, from top to bottom, at four designed positions around the building.
There had been considerable leaking due to the failing joints – not Unisons,  initially installed and in 2016. These gaps were often the cause of water inundation and was a hazard to the general public.
