UK Developments Review
London 2012 Olympic Games
Apart from the London 2012 Olympic Games' organizers, the many contractors, engineers, planners, architects and other suppliers are well aware of the fact that there can be no over-running of schedules. The date and time for the opening ceremony have already been set and the stadium and associated facilities just have to be ready.
London City Council is also aware that the eyes of the world will be on London and that the planned development of infrastructures to facilitate the rapid movement of people around London during the Games also needs to be working efficiently.
In January 2008, the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) issued a detailed description of the scale of works to deliver the venues and infrastructure needed and the legacy benefits the large-scale investment will bring.
The scope of works the ODA will carry out on the Olympic Park and at venues around the country is twice the size of Heathrow’s Terminal 5 to be delivered in half the time.
The challenges and benefits of the project include:
It has always been the objective of the organizers to leave a positive legacy for the community after the games. The Olympic Park will provide parklands with more than 100 hectares of free to access public open space. Not only will there be the sporting facilities but venues for social and cultural activities.
