Bangor University warned over Pontio arts centre delays

Bangor University was warned its £49m arts centre could be delayed and run over budget six months before cancelling its opening production.

Papers also show the Welsh government and Arts Council for Wales both had separate concerns about Pontio in 2011.

The project's cost has risen from £37m and its planned October opening has been pushed to February 2015.

University Pro Vice-Chancellor Jerry Hunter said contractors told them that the project could be delivered on time.
