Also on the agenda were visits to Earls Court, Hadleigh Farm, The Royal Artillery Barracks and the new Velodrome being built in the Olympic Park.

“We can see the pieces of the puzzle falling into place now, and the big picture is rapidly becoming visible,” said Mr Oswald.


“Preparations are advancing at an astonishing rate and LOCOG, the ODA and their partners should be congratulated for the high quality of the work they are producing across this complex project.”
