Expansion of the SiS sports center - Q&A
Q: Why have you moved the entrance and parking? (NB: This will happen during April - all members will be informed as it approaches)
A: The city's biggest sports center is getting even bigger and rougher! Climbing, squash, performance, padel, saddles and equipment - we will have most of it. On the way there, we have to adapt to the construction a bit. Therefore, there will be a bit of reconstruction here and there until it is finished at the end of 2024.
Q: Where is the parking? How long can I stand for free? (NB: This will happen during April - all members will be informed when it gets closer)
A: The car park is at the front of the building as before, but now on the other side of the road. It is clearly marked with SiS sports centre, and you can park there for free for 2 hours.
Q: How do I get from the car park to the sports centre? (NB: This will happen during April - all members will be informed as it approaches)
A: If you are standing in the car park, you can scan a QR code on the sign, which will show you the way from the car park to the sports center in Google Maps. But briefly explained; Cross the road towards the building and stay on the left side of the sports center until the corner. There you turn right and follow the building on to the new entrance.
Q: How long do we have to use the new car park and entrance? (NB: This will happen during April - all members will be informed as it approaches)
A: It depends on how the construction work goes forward. In any case, you will be notified in good time if changes should appear.
Q: Occasionally I hear a beeping/howling alarm, followed by a drone. What is this?
A: It is blasting work in connection with the new water and drainage system for the sports centre. The alarm goes off to warn of an explosion, and stops when it is done.
Q: I have been stopped on the road (by car) and in the area (on foot) in connection with the alarm and explosion. Why?
A: It's for your own safety. Blasting work is intense business, and we are required to stop people in a given radius from the blasting area well in advance of the explosion.
Q: Will the redevelopment affect the offer at the sports center in the future?
A: SiS sports center will remain open as normal, but it there will be some small adjustments along the way to adapt to the building plans. For example, it may happen that we have to take a planned performance class in the hall outside one day, or that a wall has to be moved in one room, so we therefore have to move to another.
