The Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Delhi, India, has been opened following extensive renovation and remodelling work.

The venue will host the athletics events and opening and closing ceremonies of the Commonwealth Games, which will begin in October this year.

The stadium has been rebuilt at a cost of Rs9.610bn ($205.9m) and can accommodate 60,000 spectators.

It also features a class-I certified, nine-lane 400m track, with a ten-lane straight, a nine-lane warm-up track and an 80m, six-lane track.

Other works involved completing the Rs3bn ($64m) polytetrafluroethylene membrane roof, which resembles a group of swans in flight.

The stadium, first built in 1982, now features individual seats in the upper tiers compared with the original cemented galleries.
