I must admit that I was not keen on the external appearance of the Velodrome when the first of the gold, silver and bronze tiles were put in place. Now that most of the tiles are on, I find it more attractive, and in fact seen from a distance with a shaft of sunlight catching the colours it looks much nicer, particularly in relation to the surrounding buildings.
The automotive jumble in the foreground is the Audi dealership.
I wonder what it will look like at night.
Meanwhile .................... on the other side, between the Velodrome and the Riverside Path, work has already started on the outdoor track, after the controversial decision by the DCC Planning Committee last week.
Secondly that DCC are anxious to get on with the job before the bird nesting season starts.
The Wildlife Groups are planning to take legal action on the planning decision and if the dispute goes to court someone will be losing a lot of money in legal fees.
