Glasgow 2014 On Course - CGF
The Commonwealth Games Federation's (CGF) Coordination Commission ended a four day visit to Glasgow Thursday, the first of six ahead of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.
The commission reviewed several areas during the visit, including infrastructure, security, transport, workforce ramp up, finance, management and planning.
Bruce Robertson, Vice President of the CGF and Chair of the Commission, said following the visit, "the project is on course, there are no red flags.
"We are satisfied with progress including the great strength of partnership, progress on planning, and delivery of the major infrastructure elements such as the Athletes' Village and the sports venues, and the clear focus on generating value and legacy for the people of Glasgow and Scotland".
Glasgow 2014 Chief Executive David Grevemberg said, "we are on track and on budget and we're absolutely delighted to show the Coordination Commission members our progress, as well as discuss the pathway ahead of us. We have achieved a great deal to date, we have a great team and are confident we will deliver an outstanding Games".
