Plans for new fitness facilities at Worsley Leisure Centre have been unveiled by Salford City Council to boost health and wellbeing in the city.
The £1.4 million investment includes:
Adding a new first floor to the existing building to house a 295m2 gym with state of the art equipment.
A new multi-purpose studio to replace the current gym on the lower ground floor
Extending the cafe
Creating a new glass visitor entrance and reception area
And, as part of the council's £500,000 investment in expanding library provision across the city, new public access computers will be installed at the centre along with a click, reserve and collect book service open to everyone.
The work is the first major phase of Salford City Council's £35 million investment plan to develop leisure centres across the city which was announced last year. Broughton Leisure Centre, which has been operating for 50 years, was the first to be renovated with the addition of a ladies only gym, a spinning area, improved changing facilities and new gym equipment.
Work on redeveloping the centre will begin in April 2018 and is expected to finish by the end of 2018. Access to the centre's three swimming pools, sauna and steam facilities will not be affected with lessons, aqua classes, events and swim sessions continuing as normal.
