The Gold Coast will play host the 2018 Commonwealth Games and the new Queensland State Velodrome is the venue for the international indoor cycling program. The Velodrome will be located alongside the Brisbane Super X BMX Track at Sleeman Sports Complex and will provide a new centre of excellence for cycling in Queensland. As Queensland’s first indoor velodrome, this world class facility will attract elite training squads and competition events to further the development of cycling in Queensland. The new velodrome will be more than just a track cycling facility and the in-field area will have capacity to provide for a range of additional sport and recreation uses through the provision of mixed-use sports courts. This venture is jointly funded by the Queensland Government and Australian Government.

- Site Wide Electrical Services

- Site Wide Security Systems
- Design and Construct Sports Lighting and Truss Installation
The velodrome is scheduled to be completed in mid-2016 and will host the Track Cycling competition for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.
