Construction work is underway on a new £3.7 million ($4.9 million/€4.1 million) Olympic-standard BMX track being built in Glasgow prior to the 2018 European Championships.

The BMX Centre at Knightswood Recreation Ground is the only permanent venue being constructed for use at Glasgow 2018, a new multi-sport event bringing together some of the continent’s leading sports, and will be Scotland’s only world and Olympic-standard BMX track.

Work is expected to be complete around May of next year, after which the venue will host a number of test events in the lead up to Glasgow 2018.
