London Olympics Sporting Venue 2012
London 2012 Summer Olympics and Paralympics venues are mostly located in the host city of London, though some other events require facilities located elsewhere. Since the successful bid for the 2012 Summer Olympics and 2012 Summer Paralympics, some details have changed, with ongoing developments and announcements taking place.
Olympic Sporting Venues 2012 London
- 2012 London Olympic Games use a mixture of newly built venues, existing facilities, and temporary facilities, some of them in well known locations such as Hyde Park and Horse Guards Parade. In the wake of the problems that plagued the Millennium Dome, the intention is that there will be no white elephants after the games. Some of the new facilities will be reused in their Olympic form, while others will be reduced in size and several will be relocated elsewhere in the UK. The plans contribute to the regeneration of Stratford in east London which is the site of the Olympic Park, and of the neighbouring Lower Lea Valley.
- The majority of venues have been divided into three zones within Greater London : London Olympic Zone, the River Zone and the Central Zone. In addition to these are those venues that, by necessity, are outside the boundaries of Greater London.
- The International Olympic Committee ( IOC ) noted that at the time of the bid further negotiations were necessary to ensure the use of the Old Trafford and Villa Park football stadia. The need for compulsory purchase orders was also highlighted as a possible problem for the Olympic Park, but did not expect this to cause any “undue delay to construction schedules”.
