New pool cov­ers for the lane pool that will roll away each day un­der built in seat­ing is also be­ing added to save en­ergy costs by re­duc­ing heat loss at night.

The en­trance to the Arena and pool will also have a facelift, with the in­stal­la­tion of new slip-re­sis­tant oor­ing and added dec­o­ra­tive fea­tures. Along with the re­fresh, a lot of main­te­nance work will be car­ried out be­hind the scenes in the plant room. To stop the re­cent wa­ter loss to the lane pool, new wa­ter feeder pipes will be xed at a low level along three sides of the pool. The pool is ex­pected to re­open on Fri­day 16 Au­gust.
