Village plans not on track.

PREPARATIONS for this summer's Manchester Commonwealth Games have been given the thumbs-up - but there are still reservations about the athletes' village.

The Commonwealth Games Federation's evaluation team have praised the organisers in Manchester after completing their third and final inspection visit to the city.

However, one member of the team, Perry Crosswhite, chief executive of the Australian Commonwealth Games Association, is still not completely satisfied with the athletes' village.

"I have been heartened by this visit as far as the village is concerned, " he said.

"I must say they're not there yet and I'll be frank about that.

"Let's not be totally rosy about it. The other problem is that all athletes compare with what they have seen before and the last Games before this were in Sydney."
