Front-row seats offer dramatic views of Olympic Park transformation

London Legacy Development Corporation is to give front-row seats to the public to view the evolving state of the Olympic Park.

The group has reopened the Greenway and the View Tube near the Olympic Stadium and aquatics centre, which were closed during the games, so people can see first-hand the dramatic changes to the landscape.

The Greenway cycle and footpath connecting Hackney Wick to Pudding Mill Lane in Stratford was visited by thousands of people during the build up to the Games. The View Tube visitor centre made of green shipping containers has also reopened.

"This is another way for people to see the creation of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park," said corporation chief executive Dennis Hone. "The View Tube has become one of the most popular places to visit since the Olympic Park has started.

"Now it has been expanded to become a larger community hub that will bring people together as their new park is created in front of them."
