designed by UK firm hopkin architects the 6,000 seat velodrome will host the olympic
and paralympic track cycling events in 2012. after the games, the legacy velodrome
will be used by elite athletes and the local community and will include a café, bike hire
and cycle workshop facilities.
construction work started on the velodrome in march 2009 making it one of the last
of the ‘big five’ olympic park venues to get underway but with the velodrome steel
structure complete and work now underway to install the distinctive double-curved
cable-net roof, the venue is on track for completion in early 2011 to make it
the first olympic park venue to be completed.
