Herne Hill Velodrome on track

At a meeting at the end of June 2003 proposals to redevelop the Herne Hill Velodrome were passed by Southwark Council. This cycling facility is of national importance - it was host to the 1908 and 1948 Olympics cycling events - and will now be redeveloped to provide all year round track cycling facilities which will be available to local residents. it will also act as a national cycling centre of excellence.
