As the tour was being conducted and we passed all the SAFETY FIRST signs and how important safety was, the speaker was portable, and this guy surley lost his eardrum twice due to feedback. It was just so funny!

WEIGHTLIFTING

They did not even tour this venue, it was said to be 60% done but everyone says 20%. Biggest issue with Swimming.

More tomorrow to include other venues but not all venues were visited.

Media was also limited to NETBALL Venue only and not permitted in other venues (they must have learnt from the Chinese for Media control techniques, so good to see pasing the knowledge is happening)

wow NOC,

thanks very much for the pics - these pictures are really interesting - the swimming venue looks realy very behind the schedule. I wonder how the Indian will manage to get ready until the CWG - the time is ticking, but I hope/think they will make it....

But I doubt they will be able to "test" the venues

Some really great looking venues there, and some worrying photos as well. A real mixed bag. Thanks for the updates. :)

Thanks for the photos. The weightlifting venue is just sad haha, they should just stop and focus their resources on another venue, put weightlifting at a convention centre, or even at a University's gym. The Aquatic Centre is a big problem though.

Thanks for the updates. Its good to see where the venues are at. Really worried about the Swimming stadium. Miles behind time. This must be a concern that this will not be completed on time.

Its less than a year

Test Events start in three months time.

All Test events must be completed by 30th June

The media has been getting spun so much crap in India that they shame the chinese with spin.

The Commonwealth Games are at a Serious crossroads and a massive amount of work must be done to be completed in time

If only the media was allowed to see the real venues

NOC great pictures . Is it true when the Organizing committee was asked about the Marshalling Area for the athletes for the Opening Ceremonies the Committee had no answers and were clueless ? I friend in the Inspection Party Told me this . He said this factor is very important for the Athletes well being.

I wonder why the committee has not taken the advice of Austin Sealy in regards to the velodrome just renting a temporary Velodrome from the US. It is in the Bid plans for Toronto 2015 and has existed for a while . It is a Schuermann 250 metre track that can go anywhere in the world having a set up time of 6 weeks after arrival . This system is complete with 3500 seats is enclosed and air conditioned.

New Delhi 2010 was to look to temporary pre engineered solutions that are out there. Astral Pools , Green Tech ITM Tray turf. Bailey Bridges . a great deal of time can be shaved for Capital Projects for the games by knowing of these things. The flyovers for Transportation could certainly be completed if as reported the columns are in place. Bailey Bridges could do the job and are very quick to install.
