The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) has achieved its construction targets by starting work on its final project for the London 2012 Games, the White Water Canoe Centre.
The ODA has hit all its foundation targets in the big build of venues and infrastructure for the 2012 Games with work getting under way at the centre in Broxbourne, Hertfordshire.
It is hoped that the facility will be completed ahead of the 2012 canoe slalom competitions and be used as a training facility and by the local community.
Speaking about the milestone, ODA chairman John Armitt said it was a “significant achievement”.
He said: “The start of work at Broxbourne shows we are hitting our targets not just on the Olympic Park but across the 2012 project. We are making good progress but there will continue to be tough challenges ahead and we are not complacent.
“The start of construction work in Broxbourne keeps us on track to deliver a world-class venue for 2012.”
European canoe slalom champion Laura Blakeman has been among the first visitors to the site close to Waltham Cross station where the first-class facility will stand.
