Morrison Construction has won the contract to construct enhanced rowing and canoe sprint facilities for the London 2012 Games near Windsor, Berkshire.
The rowing and canoe sprint events during the Games will take place at the Eton College Rowing Centre at Dorney Lake.
Set in a 450-acre parkland, the venue currently consists of a 2,000m, eight-lane rowing lake, return lane and associated competition facilities.
Morrison’s work will include:
- The installation of a new 50m span bridge over a widened entrance to the return lane for two-way vehicular traffic and segregated pedestrian traffic
- Construction of a cut-through between the competition lake and the return lane, with a new bridge over the cut-through
- The upgrade of the existing gravel/stone access road up to the competition venue to facilitate construction works and for use during the Games
The works are expected to start on site in late summer.
