A new webcam overlooking the site of the London 2012 Velodrome has been launched by the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA)
The webcam will show updated images of the Velodrome throughout the day and is accessible via the London 2012 website at http://www.london2012.com/plans/olympic-park/webcams/velodrome.php.
Construction work on the Velodrome began on schedule in March and there are now more than 150 workers on site. The foundations of the venue have been completed and the first above ground structural elements are well underway with the 360 degree concourse level already taking shape. Work on the structural steelwork that will help form the distinct Velodrome shape is due to begin in the Autumn.
The 6,000 seat Velodrome and adjacent BMX track will host the Olympic and track cycling and BMX events, and Paralympic track cycling events in 2012. After the Games, the legacy Velodrome will include a café, bike hire and cycle workshop facilities. The venue design includes a 360 degree concourse level offering fantastic views over the Olympic Park, and out to the London skyline.
After the 2012 Games, a road cycle circuit and mountain bike course will be added to the Velodrome and BMX circuit to create a legacy VeloPark that will combine cycling facilities across all disciplines in one cycling ‘hub’. The legacy VeloPark will be owned, funded and operated by Lee Valley Regional Park Authority. The construction of the VeloPark facilities includes funding from Lee Valley Regional Park Authority (LVRPA), Sport England, Transport for London (TfL), and the London Marathon Charitable Trust (LMCT).
