Construction was completed in July 2014. General Air was excited to be involved in this redevelopment, the first Commonwealth Games legacy infrastructure project to get underway.

Queensland State Velodrome

The new Queensland State Velodrome will be built at the southern end of the Sleeman Sports Complex in Chandler and will provide a new centre of excellence for cycling in Queensland.

This will be Queensland’s first indoor velodrome, a new world class facility and will attract elite training squads and competition events to further the development of cycling in Queensland.  It will boast a world class timber track and streamlined roof design to overcome the weather limitations of the existing outdoor velodrome, which was originally built for the 1982 Brisbane Commonwealth Games.

The velodrome will be more than just a track cycling facility, the in-field area will have capacity to provide for a range of additional sport and recreation uses through the provision of mixed-use sports courts.

The velodrome is scheduled to be completed in mid-2016 and will host the Track Cycling competition for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.
