ODA starts water works

The Olympic Delivery Authority has started work on turning 8.35km of waterways in East London into ‘Green Corridors’.

The river adjacent to the Aquatics Centre is currently being widened and the existing 1930s concrete river walls are being replaced.

The waterways are also central to the ODA’s infrastructure programme with plans to bridge them with a combination of permanent and temporary bridges which will improve access for construction vehicles across the site.

Meanwhile, British Waterways has begun work on a new lock and water control structure on Prescott Channel which should be completed by the Beijing Games.
