Sports construction specialist CLS Sports has upgraded the running track at Wavertree Stadium, Liverpool, as part of the city’s bid for the 2022 Commonwealth Games.
The stadium, which was used as a training centre for London 2012, has undergone a multi-million pound refurbishment over the past four years in order to create a world-class athletic venue.
CLS was appointed by project administrators Sports Lab to replace the existing eight-lane 400mm track with a new IAAF Polytan non-porous sandwich system. The new all-weather track consists of a rubber mat placed onto the existing macadam sub-base with a polyurethane and red rubber crumb top surface. It includes a 110m home straight, mirrored on the back straight, and features augmented field facilities, also constructed by CLS.
John Miller, managing director at CLS Sports, says: "This project reinforces our reputation for excellence in the track-building industry. We are privileged to be able to deliver a world-class sporting facility for Liverpool."
