Regeneration of Olympic Park to Boost the Building Construction Industry
The London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) has unveiled plans for the regeneration of the future Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park which will generate millions of pounds in the British economy and boost the building construction industry.
The new park will reopen exactly one year after London 2012 opening ceremony, becoming an exciting new visitor destination and community park unlike any other in the UK, the LLDC said.
The creation of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will be one of the biggest construction projects in Europe. The 18 month transformation programme will lay the foundation for further building and construction work in East London over the next 20 years.
The transformation programme will clear Games-time structures including temporary venues such as bridges, walkways and roads. It will also connect the Park to the surrounding area with new roads, and foot paths as well as complete permanent venues to be used by visitors and the public.
The Legacy Corporation said that it is working together with experienced team of construction and architecture specialists who will deliver the best quality Park whilst making sure plans are completed as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Chief Executive of the LLDC, Andrew Altman, commented that the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will become one of the most thriving parts of London and will help for the creation of thousands of new homes and jobs in East London.
Mr Altman said: “The transformation will take the Park from an Olympic site, to a new piece of London that’s owned and shaped by the community in and around it. Above all, the Park will create a place of practical benefit for the surrounding community – a place to take your children swimming at weekends, go to school, walk your dog or go to a festival in the summer.”
He said: “The fantastic new sporting venues are only one part of the unfolding legacy story. The Park will help drive the growth London needs to steer it out of recession and on to long term prosperity.”
