The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) has coined a new catchphrase — “demolish, dig, design” — for the latest stage of the Olympic Park developments.
The phrase refers to the cleaning up of the Olympic Park site — including the clearing of Japanese knotweed, the building of bridges and roads, improvements to transport links and the preparations for venue construction. The ODA hopes to achieve all of these tasks by the time of the 2008 Beijing Games next summer.
ODA chief executive David Higgins said: “In our first year we have hit every milestone on the project. We now move to the next strategic phase: ‘demolish, dig, design’. This is an extremely challenging project, but by setting out the programme of work in this transparent way we believe that we are breaking new ground for a project of this scale.”
