Has Olympic work been stitched up?


Sir, I am thinking of changing my name to Sherlock Homes, as one needs the skills of a detective to get information about the Olympic Games site.

Calls to the London Development Authority are fobbed off with a message referring the caller to their website, which carries no information whatsoever. Calls to London 2012 are dismissed with a message that they have no requirements.

But I read in Construction News that a lot of the contracts are already cut and dried. Is this another case of the old boy network rearing its ugly head?
