ONE of the two pools at Tollcross International Swimming Centre is to reopen next week.

And the second, larger pool will be back in use within weeks.

In May, the swim ­centre reopened after a £14million ­upgrade, which took 19 months to complete.

The work resulted in an improved 10-lane, 50m competition pool, a new six-lane, 50m warm-up pool and an extra 1000 permanent seats, creating one of the largest facilities of its kind in Europe.

On October 17, the pools closed again, so a wall could be moved to allow temporary seating to be installed in time for the Commonwealth Games.

Part of the centre's roof also had to be strengthened.
