Excellent video you posted march 6th Jerseyboi. Where do you find this stuff?
Certainly looks like they are cramming the new housing into every square inch of the allocated land. I know most of this is still not designed as yet (?), but hope the 60s style housing on the site of the basketball stadium will look better.

Definitely Most of the venues are complete and have already held events (such as the Aquatics Centre and Velodrome for example).

The Olympic Stadium opens on May 5 with a special event to mark 2,012 hours until the start of the Games (I have tickets to that, quite excited!).

So all ahead of schedule

I'll come to London for Easter holidays and I'm interested to know if is possible to visit the Olympics Park or is closed to the visitor.

Thanks for your answers.
