Olympic Velodrome showcases steel

According to architect Paul Ryder, the Olympic Velodrome at Bankstown in Sydney’s south-west was always going to feature structural steel.

“Only steel could provide a structural system to support such a large span project,” Paul said.

Indeed, the $41 million Dunc Gray Velodrome, named after Australia’s first Olympic gold medallist for cycling, is the biggest single-span structure in Australia.

“Structural steel provided the strength and lightness needed for the project, with fewer construction difficulties than other materials,” Paul said.
