Construction work on the £13.7m Tollcross International Swimming Centre, venue for the swimming competition at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, has reached a landmark stage with the installation of a truss.

The truss forms the framework of the building extension for the new six-lane 50m warm-up swimming pool at Tollcross. This is being built to add to the existing 10-lane 50 metre competition pool at Tollcross, providing a dedicated venue for swimming events at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Additional work at Tollcross International Swimming Centre will result in the creation of a new community facility to replace the fire-damaged Shettleston Burgh Halls and the refurbishment of the existing Tollcross Leisure Centre.

The design of the enhanced facility was carried out by Glasgow City Council's in-house design team. The construction work for the project is being delivered by Barr Holdings Limited.

Councillor Archie Graham, Executive Member for the Commonwealth Glasgow City Council, said: "The installation of the truss is a landmark stage in the creation of the Tollcross International Swimming Centre, not only a competition venue for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, but for future events and training for swimmers at all levels.

"Six months after the pool closed, work is progressing very well on a facility that can host swimming competitions at the highest level. The new centre will be a fantastic new facility for Glasgow, benefiting the city for generations to come."
