The Commonwealth Games are coming to Glasgow in 2014, and as usual with these big things it means lots of construction - existing venues are being reused a lot, but we're also getting a big new sports arena - the National Indoor Sports Arena and the Chris Hoy Velodrome.

Construction of the main structure is mostly complete, so I thought it was a good time to go along for a first look. This is the NISA, which will have a hydraulically-operated 200m running track (not sure exactly what that means) and 5,000 seats.

Next door, connected by a "hub" with the facilities, is the velodrome, which will have a 250m high-banked track and 2,000 seats.

What's that you say? Overhead gantries? I don't mind if I do :)

That's it. At the moment it's just a shell, but it'll be worth some repeat visits when it's a bit further along...
