BUILDING is now underway on the 30 new bridges in the 2012 Olympic Park.

Contractors began work this week on the foundations of a permanent bridge in the centre of the Olympic Park which is to span Carpenters-road in Stratford to create a link for construction traffic on the site.

The bridge will then become part of the central pedestrian concourse through the middle of the park during the 2012 in Games and remain afterwards.

The start of works saw 290 cubic metres of concrete poured into the first foundations for the abutments of the bridge on Monday.

Contractors also begin work later this summer on the huge 'land' bridge that will take spectators into the Olympic Park from Stratford International and Stratford Regional rail stations.
