The construction works will commence in December 2021 following the initial enabling works.
The planned completion date for the temporary Transport Malls is April/May 2022 in readiness
for the Games test events. After the Games the Transport Mall site will be returned to parkland
(known as the reinstatement works).
The temporary new road network and pavement will be installed connecting two new entrances
from Church Road to the newly built Athletes’ Route. To link the surrounding areas crossing
points and pedestrian walkways will be installed across the park to enable spectators to access
the main stadium entrances. The temporary Transport Mall itself will be constructed with its own
drainage system, substructure, and surfacing. All road markings and final finishes will be
installed prior to the site being handed over for test events in the Spring.
