Delhi Commonwealth Games update: JNS nearing completion

Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, which was originally built in 1982, is finally nearing its completion for the changes started for the Delhi CWG 2010 Games.

Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Delhi

Recently, the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium has been in news for all the wrong reasons. Project delays, over-budget project and the fact the Commonwealth Games are around the corner added to the misery.

But finally there’s something to cheer about. The work on Jawaharlala Nehru Stadium is expected to be completed by June 2010. Consultants from six countries, and an investment of Rs 500 crore, of which 100 crore went in building the membrane roof, the JN Stadium is one of its kind in India. The membrane roof of 54000 sq m is made up of coated glass fiber, and is being manufactured in USA and Mexico.

The roof structure is largest in Asia and has a membrane roof, which forms the upper ridge and inclined roof for spectators, then a radial ridge and radial valley cables followed by a primary roof, which is a spoke wheel structure and will take the maximum load of the roof. 85000 tonnes of steel are being used for constructing the roof!
