Olympic pumping station design unveiled

Concept designs for the 2012 Olympic Park pumping station have been unveiled by the Olympic Delivery Authority.

The structure will be built in the south of the park and will collect, convey and discharge foul waste from the main venues and buildings during Games time, and from legacy venues and residential developments after 2012.

A planning application for the job has been submitted, with Barhale Construction due to carry out the work.

New photos have also been released showing construction work on the pumping station where work is well underway to construct the foundations for the building and build a 12.5 m wide shaft beneath the ground.

The shaft will connect the pumping station to 1.8 km of foul sewer tunnels which have now started to be constructed throughout the Park.
