New aerial footage of the Olympic Park released today shows a quarter of the land has been cleared and underlines scale of the work to come.
The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) released the footage saying 'the ODA are firmly on track to have the majority of the Olympic Park cleared and cleaned by Beijing 2008 - one of 10 key 'Milestones to Beijing' announced last month.'The ODA is demolishing buildings, removing invasive vegetation and cleaning up the land as it gains possession of each part of the site. In total 24% of the Park has now been cleared.Clearance and demolition has already started on key parts of the site, including Eton Manor in the north and the Aquatics Centre site in the south. So far more than 95% of demolition material is being recycled or reused, beating the 90% target set out in the ODA's Sustainable Development Strategy earlier this year.
