Flowing for Gold at Olympic white water centre

Work at the new white water canoe centre being built for the 2012 Olympic games took a step forward after it was filled with water this week.

The Olympic Delivery Authority started construction work on the Lee Valley White Water Centre near Waltham Cross in Hertfordshire last July and over 150 people now work at the 10 hectare site.

Testing work can now begin on the canoe courses and internal fit-out is also now underway on the two-storey building. Landscaping works have started, and the venue is on track to be finished later this year.

The centre will host the canoe slalom events during Olympics, and will then be run by the Lee Valley Regional Park Authority after the games.
