The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) has released new aerial images of construction work on the Olympic Park showing, as the project enters its toughest year.
The images have been published as the International Olympic CommitteeвЂ™s Coordination Commission visits the capital for a progress update on LondonвЂ™s plans for staging the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
ODA Chairman John Armitt, said: вЂњWith construction work on the Olympic Park approaching its peak, the вЂBig FiveвЂ™ venues are already becoming landmarks on the east London skyline and show how much progress has been made since the IOC Coordination Commission visited earlier this year.
вЂњThe external structure of the Olympic Stadium has been finished and the completion of the Aquatics Centre roof gives us an exciting glimpse of what will become the вЂGateway to the GamesвЂ™ and the Olympic ParkвЂ™s most iconic venue. Work is also racing ahead in the north of the Park with the first residential plot of the Village structurally complete, the huge frame of the IBC/MPC in place and the striking architecture of the Velodrome taking shape.
вЂњThe Olympic Park вЂ™big buildвЂ™ is firmly on track but we are not complacent and these new images show the sheer scale of the project and the challenges ahead as we enter our toughest year in the project.вЂќ
