No, it's not an April Fool's joke. Work really will begin on a new sports centre in Junglinster on April 1.

(AS/JB) Junglinster is to get a new public sports centre with work to begin on April 1. And no, this is not an April Fool's joke.

The 16.5-million-euro facility is to be constructed next to the N11 beside an existing football pitch.

It will feature three basketball courts, a volleyball court and six badminton courts. In addition, a hall will be constructed with three tennis courts and a multi-purpose area with a climbing wall to host various activities.

The sports centre is expected to open its doors to the public in May 2018.

Designed by architects Beiler & François, the project received the greenlight from planning authorities in autumn last year.

The Luxembourg state will contribute four million euros towards the construction costs.
