WORK on the new Platinum Jubilee Leisure Centre, under construction in West Drayton, is being directly managed by Hillingdon Council  

Despite the original contractor filing for administration in 2023, the council last week decided to complete the rest of the work itself.  

The site will include a 25-metre swimming pool, training pool, splash-zone, gym and health suite, soft play, youth and community hub, café, terrace and rooftop 3G five-a-side football pitch. 

The external brickwork has been completed, along with preparations to fit all of the windows, to make the building weather tight.

The next phase of construction will focus on the mechanical and electrical work, alongside plastering, painting and tiling.

External work and landscaping will be further developed, along with the car park. 

The centre is expected to be completed by next summer.
