The £9M project to create an Olympic rowing course in London's Royal Albert Dock is nearing completion. Contractor Mowlem has built a bike-friendly two-lane crossing over the dock's mouth to improve access, and has completed demolition of the existing single-lane swing bridge. Existing dock walls will be excavated to widen the dock enough to accommodate the 2km rowing course. A new sheet pile dock wall has been installed and ground anchoring is now taking place. Royal Albert Dock should see its first oarsmen afloat in November.
