London 2012 - Olympic Games Update

 

work is progressing to schedule.

Already becoming established as a London landmark visible from many main routes in the east of London, the London 2012 Olympic Games main stadium and associated structures such as the aquatic centre and the velodrome with their distinct architectural designs, are progressing at an amazing rate.

As this aerial picture and other pictures in the review show, work is progressing to schedule.

The enhancement works include a new 50 m bridge at the finish line area, the upgrade of an existing gravel/stone access road within the venue site for use during the Games, and a cut-through and new bridge between the competition lake and return lane of the 2,000 m rowing course.

Work starts on Olympic Stadium’s field of play

On the second anniversary of the start of construction on the Olympic Stadium, work has begun on the field of play and the first batch of seats is being manufactured.

The centre of the Stadium has been cleared of cranes and other equipment so work can begin on creating the correct ground conditions for the running track and the turf for the field events. Over the coming months, ducts and a drainage system will be installed and the base layers will be laid in preparation for laying the turf and track next year.

The manufacture of the black and white seats has also started in a factory in Luton and they will start to be fitted into the Stadium later this summer.
