ICE and Ordnance Survey team up for special Olympics map

A special edition map celebrating the role of civil engineers in transforming the 2012 Olympic Park has been published by ICE and Ordnance Survey.


The Engineering the Olympics map, supported by the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA), plots the main venues, utilities, road and rail links and explains how engineers overcame the challenges of managing complex waste, transport, energy and water resources on the site.

Miranda Housden, London director of the ICE, said: “This map brings to life the challenges that engineers faced in transforming the site into what we see today - a space which will very soon be at the very heart of a vibrant and prosperous East London. The ICE is delighted to invite London’s schools to make the most of this learning resource.”

Achievement

Simon Wright, director of infrastructure, utilities and public realm at the ODA, added: “Producing such a detailed and visual map of the Olympic Park - Europe’s largest construction site - is a significant achievement in itself.

“It is also a testament to the engineering feats of those who have breathed life into the spectacular venues and infrastructure on the site. Perhaps more importantly, it is set to become a vital tool which can be used to educate and inform the next generation of civil engineers.”
