This will act as a gateway to the Olympic park. The venue will house two 50m swimming pools and a diving pool. Seating up to 175,000 during the games.
After the games it will be used by the public and elite athletes, family friendly changing facilities and cafe amenities alongside a new public plaza. I will be visiting once open.

This is part of the river Lea, that had to be cleaned m we all know how polluted the rivers are in London but get this: 2,000 newts had to be relocated from the river. It had so many supermarket trolley in there but looks pretty clean to me now. Also along here tree were planted and one by the Queen herself as she has already visited the site some time ago, i wonder if she took the tour bus too?

There is so much more about this development , i was impressed that a look of recycling was going on , also that it will be a car free zone, people attending the games will have to walk , cycle or use public transport. Only one car park for the media and disabled.
If you want to read more visit here I would like to attend the games once complete.

Assalam-alaikam Sis,

thanks for the fab pictures, I knew they had to clean the soil, but had no idea how!
I hear that West Ham FC are looking to relocate from Green Street to the Olympic Stadium after the Games, that would be an interesting change in the area.

Prayers for Peace
