Chhatrasal stadium ready for Commonwealth Games

The renovated Chhatrasal Stadium, which would be used as a training venue for athletes during the 2010 Commonwealth Games, was on Friday inaugurated by Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, who declared that with this project her Government has completed the construction of all the three stadia entrusted to it.

Speaking at the function, the Chief Minister also stated that all the other Games-related infrastructure projects which include flyovers, elevated roads and street-scaping works would be completed by June.

The face-lifting work of the Chhatrasal Stadium, she said, has been completed within the stipulated time-frame. It has a 400 metre by eight metre synthetic athletic track with four high-mast lights to give lighting of 500 lux. The stadium now also boasts a double-storey new athletic block and parking facility for 464 vehicles at the ground level and in the basement.

It has also been provided with a cafeteria, physiotherapy centre, medical room, security room, event managers' room and store on the ground floor and two separate athletic lounge for males and females, a VIP lounge, conference room and technical observer room on the first floor.

Renovated at a cost of Rs.70 crore, the stadium would be used as a training venue during the Games. Thereafter it would continue to serve as an important venue for national school games and State-level Republic Day and Independence Day functions.

Public Works Department Minister Raj Kumar Chauhan said the Department has strengthened and resurfaced the 450-metre road leading to the stadium and has also taken up street-scaping works to spruce up the roads leading to all the Games venues.
