MILTON, Ont.

The Town of Milton has approved construction of a permanent velodrome for the Toronto 2015 Pan/Parapan American Games.

The decision was made during the town’s Jan. 30 council meeting. The permanent arena for cycling, which features a steeply banked 250-metre oval track, will include an infield that can support other activities such as basketball, volleyball or badminton.

“On behalf of TO2015, we would like to thank the Town of Milton for making this velodrome a reality,” says Ian Troop, Chief Executive Officer, Toronto 2015 Pan/Parapan Am Games Organizing Committee (TO2015) in a release. “This is the result of sound deliberation and an appreciation for the potential associated with a permanent velodrome.”

The velodrome is one of several stand-alone venues planned for the Games. The successful proponent for the velodrome is expected in summer 2012, construction is expected to begin in early 2013 and the facility is expected to be ready for test events in 2014.

The Games are expected to draw 10,000 athletes and officials and feature 48 sports in 17 municipalities across the Greater Golden Horseshoe area.
