'Toughest year' for Olympic build

As many as 11,000 people are expected to work on building the Olympic Park in east London by autumn, in what is set to be the “toughest year” of the big build.

The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) said there are currently 6,442 people working at the Stratford site, with about half working on constructing the Olympic Village.

The ODA, which is in charge of Olympic build and infrastructure, said 2010 will be the “toughest year” in the construction work and the number of workers will peak at 11,000 in autumn.

Of the current Olympic Park workforce, 20% live in the Olympic host boroughs of Greenwich, Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest, while 54% overall are from London, according to the ODA.
