Description: Meadowbank

The multi-use Meadowbank in eastern Edinburgh is planned for redevelopment. The goal is to reduce the surface of 1970 Commonwealth Games complex while retaining key functions. While the field with running track will remain in place, all of the stands and terraces around it will vanish, reducing capacity from 16,500 (at peak) to just 500 seats.

The only new grandstand will be part of a much larger pavilion that will also comprise two indoor halls, three fitness studios, gym, gymnastics hall, two squash courts, indoor athletics training facilities and other.

Outside the stadium only a synthetic football field will be created and training site for athletes. Old velodrome will be demolished and – like other parts of the site – replaced with housing.
