The S$1.33-billion Singapore Sports Hub (pictured) is set to open in 2014, following the completion of the National Stadium’s tallest horizontal beam, which stands at 77.5 metres starting from its playing field.

According to Dragages Singapore, the engineering and construction firm in charge of the project, the facility is expected to be operational by next March and ready for its scheduled opening in April.

Acting Minister for Culture, Community and Youth Lawrence Wong praised the successful completion of the National Stadium’s highest truss as a critical milestone in the 35ha project

“I’m glad that we have reached this major milestone in the construction of the National Stadium. This is testament to the commitment and dedication of our partners to deliver the project on schedule. I’ve talked to many people in the sports community, and we are all excited about the completion of the Stadium and the Sports Hub.”

“Levering the highest truss into place is a defining point of time and a symbolic pillar in the building of the National Stadium, and keeps us on track to finish the project by April 2014,” noted Dragages Managing Director Ludwig Reichhold, adding that the sports hub is about 70 percent complete.
