ODA confident Olympic Park will meet ‘green expectations’

Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) officials and Olympics minister Tessa Jowell are confident that the eco-friendly Olympic Park will live up to Londoners’ green living expectations.

The park will be modelled on the Mall and Birdcage Walk next to St James’ and Hyde Park, featuring 4,000 semi-mature trees, 300,000 wetlant plants, wooded bills, meadows, ponds and woodlands.

Ms Jowell explained: “The Olympics will create a stunning green oasis in east London that in legacy will join the long list of world famous parks London is so lucky to have.

“Nowhere else will features like the Great British Garden, wetlands and new wildlife habitats sit side by side with world-class sports facilities.”

Earlier this month, the ODA confirmed that its utility buildings designed to take waste from Olympic venues, located within the park, began operating.

ODA director Simon Wright said: “The use of key design elements ensure the pumping station is not just functional but also another building of architectural interest in the Olympic Park.”ADNFCR-2805-ID-19579245-ADNFCR
