It seems the Wanstead Swimming Pool completion has been put off until September 2024 – nearly two years later than the last expected date.

A story published in Construction News reveals that Redbridge has now awarded the £13.5m contract to Jerram Falkus Construction for the project which as well as the pool includes a three-story school building, dining hall and kitchen and new leisure centre facilities. The story says the pool should be opening in September 2024

The last update Wansteadium is aware of stated that the completion of the project would be the end of this year, which followed a delay caused by the disruption of Covid. We have contacted Redbridge for an update on the project.

Update: 30 Nov: A Redbridge Council spokesperson said:

“It was not possible to progress as planned during the COVID-19 pandemic, something that impacted many other capital projects across London.

“With the current rising costs of construction nationwide, we’ve had to reprocure to find the most cost-effective way of delivering the new facilities, which we expect to complete in 2024.”
