Lifting London 2012's bridges

07 October 2009

The huge land bridge that forms the main London 2012 Olympics’ “Gateway to the Games” is now taking shape. The 250 m-long, 40 m-wide bridge, which is fabricated using 1700 tonnes of steel, will form the roof of the Aquatics Centre training pool and be the main pedestrian access into the Olympic Park. It will carry an estimated 200000 people every day during the Games. Construction work is now underway on 21 of 30 new bridges that will cross waterways, roads and rivers to create a “connected, open and accessible” Olympic Park.
