WATCH: What happens after the Olympic Games?




2013

2030

The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

Will be 560 acres (226 hectares) in size – equivalent to Hyde Park or 357 football pitches.

Costs – transformation

Around £300m will be spent on transforming the Olympic site into a new piece of London after the Games. The project is called ‘Clear, Connect, Complete’.

This money is spent on:

  • Clearing Games overlay including temporary venues, walkways and stands.
  • Connecting the Park to the surrounding areas with new roads and pathways.
  • Completing the Park’s venues to their legacy designs.

Investment

The development of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is acting as a catalyst for regeneration for the whole of east London. £12.5 billion has been invested into the Stratford area by the public and private sectors (not including the cost of building the Park).

Examples:

  • £1.45bn project Westfield (employs 10,000 people, at least 2,000 previously unemployed local people).
  • £1.3bn Lend Lease development of the International Quarter
  • £200m invested in Stratford Regional Station
  • £10million invested in upgrading pedestrian and cycle routes to Olympic venues.
