Guardian Glass will begin production at their huge new Goole plant by the M62 in 92 days.

A massive sign giving the countdown in days has been put on the entrance to the site and a quick calculation means that the first day of production will be around the first week in December.

But that is not the day of the official opening ceremony.Guardian want to begin production at the £115 million plant and ensure they get over any teething problems before holding any official gathering.Mark Bristow, UK and Ireland Regional Manager for Guardian, told The Courier: "That sign is telling you the number of days before we go into production but there could still be work to do after that - there is an awful lot going on at the site."When we have got the plant going as we want it before we would allow visitors in. "There may well be an official event of some kind but that will be arranged by factory manager Julian Proffit nearer the time."

Meanwhile Yorkshire Forward say they expect to name the partner who will join them in developing the remainder of the Junction 36 site within the next fortnight.
