    Default Olympic-standard Liverpool swimming pool

    A 15M Olympic-standard Liverpool swimming pool gets the go-ahead today.

    Councillors are set to rubber-stamp blueprints for a top-class 50-metre pool on the site of Picton Sports Centre.

    It will provide both indoor and outdoor sports facilities and attract more than 500,000 visitors every year.

    The pool is expected to be open by September next year and initial work has already begun.

    The revised cost now stands at 14.9m, with 4.02m from a Sports Lottery Grant.

    Liverpool council is finalising contracts with Gleeson Building to build the pool.

    The complex will feature a 50-metre, eight-lane pool with moveable floor, 20-metre, four- lane teaching pool and seating for 400.

    Stephen Parry, who won Olympic bronze in Athens, welcomed the news on a visit to the site.

    That pool was supposed to be completed by this year last time they mentioned it in 2004!

    Picton Sports centre has been closed for over a year and a big chunk of the park has been boarded off to make room for it!

    I've heard nothing since the announcement by Liverpool City Council on Mar 03 2006 here.

    Found this on icLiverpool:

    The 2008 Olympic flame may burn in Merseyside - Mar 15 2006

    Mr Kellett said there would be a need for good sports facilities in the region and welcomed the news of a new 50m pool in Liverpool.
