THIS is one of the latest aerial shots of the 2012 Olympic stadium, released this week more than six months after the international Games coordinating commission visited East London for a progress update.

The 'big build' on the massive construction site stretching from Stratford to Hackney Wick is firmly on track as the project enters its toughest year.

The 'Big Five' venues are already becoming landmarks on the East London skyline," said Olympics authority chairman John Armitt. "The external structure of the main stadium has been finished and completing the Aquatics centre roof gives us a glimpse of what will become the 'gateway' to the Games."

Work on the first residential plot of the Athletes' Village is structurally complete, while the Velodrome is also taking shape.
