Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) Chairman John Armitt said: “With water flowing down the courses at the White Water Centre we are getting our first look at the facilities that the world’s best canoeists will compete on in 2012. With the venue due to be completed later this year, we are also on track to deliver an early sporting legacy for the East of England region well before the Games begin.”

Lord Edward Iveagh from the East of England Development Agency (EEDA) said: “It is great to see water now coursing through what will be a fantastic leisure and sports venue for canoeists of all levels. EEDA has been instrumental in helping to create not just a world-class white water facility but also to secure a lasting economic and social legacy for local people and businesses for years to come.”

Over 500 concrete piles were driven up to 15 m deep to provide the foundation for the structures at the white water canoe course in BroxbourneThe Lee Valley White Water Centre is being built in the heart of the Lee Valley Regional Park, on a 10 hectare site covering an area the equivalent of 25 full-size football pitches.

The construction of the Lee Valley White Water Centre is due to be completed for Games training and testing in 2010-11 and will open to the public for rafting and canoeing in April 2011.
