Lane Cove Pool Upgrade

The Lane Cove 50m Pool has reached the end of its life.  The costs of maintaining the pool and fixing structural issues is mounting. In 2019 there will be significant works to install a new Olympic Pool and Grandstand at the Lane Cove Aquatic Centre.  Lane Cove Council had budgeted to undertake works in 2019 however following more extensive investigations it has been deemed it necessary to commence work asap.

The upper levels of the Olympic Pool Grandstand are currently unavailable. A temporary Grandstand will be available on the grassed area across the Summer period.

On the subject of noise if you live near the Chatswood Dive Site another Roving Reporter advised

“For those in hearing range of the Chatswood Dive site they have started some reasonably noisy night work. Last night was a very strange noise and upon inspection of their monthly update I imagine it was the “vacuum truck or excavator”.
