Birmingham aquatics centre ‘on track’ for 2022 Commonwealth Games

A new aquatics centre for the 2022 Commonwealth Games is “on track”, organisers have said.

The £73m building in Smethwick, West Midlands, will host 66 medal events – more than any other venue – and will be complete by spring next year.

So far, 163,000 tiles have been laid and the movable floor and diving tower are finished.

The aquatics centre is the only brand new venue being created for the Birmingham games.
