I think Rio will have a very big boom in next 6 years not only in the construction of sport venues but also in infrastructural projects. I also expect for some ultramodern skyscrapers from this city

Rio de Janeiro plans to clear slums ahead of the 2016 Olympic Games

Quote:
Slums in Rio de Janeiro are to be cleared and cleaned up as part of a major rebuilding plan ahead of the 2016 Olympic Games, the city's mayor says.

The plan would affect over 260,000 households and would cost over $4.5bn (£2.9bn), Rio Mayor Eduardo Paes said.

Hundreds of Rio's favelas will be re-built and 123 of the most "at risk" slums will be torn down.

Approximately 13,000 families in the 123 areas to be cleared would be relocated, Mr Paes said.

The city's slums, built out of corrugated tin, will be replaced with paved neighbourhoods with running water, electricity and gas, according to the plans.

However, the rebuilding will not be finished by the Olympic opening ceremony, as the whole rebuilding plan will take 10 years to complete, Mr Paes said.
So it looks like the slums in Rio de Janeiro will be cut down by a significant percentage and be replaced with paved neighbourhoods in a cleaner environment.

I wish it was true...I do hope so. Once again I watched a terrible report on TV yesterday. The worst bist was when a lovely little girl (10 years old) was shot in the neck by a lost bullet, she was lying flat on the back along the drain and was bleeding to death holding her neck before some powerless passer-by eyes, was atrocious...I wonder how those helpless brazilians can handle such a stressful & dangerous life on a daily basis. This war against drug dealers/poverty must come an end, it's been lasting for too long. 6000 people killed per year only in Rio, that's incredible. What about Lula guys? Has he at least tried to sort this out or not at all...? I do wish that most of those unlucky people will live in much better conditions, they're human beings for god's sake, they're entitled to a decent life, far from blood and terror. That iniative as part of the Olympics is a first step, I'm happy about it, but let's be careful, nothing is done yet...if so, will be a milestone, but 13000 families out of what, 3 millions people living in those favelas (Rocinha & stuff...), there's so much more to do...

Fingers crossed...

The southern half of the University Hospital complex on Fundao Island was imploded recently for construction of a new university hospital.

And beides the Cristo Redewntor, are there any other historical monuments needing restoration before the 2016 Olympics?

The foundation stone for the 2016 Olympic Village was laid a few days ago. Construction should begin soon.

wow, spectacular. The 'whale carcuss' very much resembles Calatraves work in Spain. But I like Rock Park and Beach museum.
