IMAGES released by the Olympic Delivery Authority show the progress being made in the construction of a new network of roads and bridges linking the East End with the Olympic Park site.
The main north-south route through the Olympic Park and new bridges into the Olympic Stadium and Aquatics Centre have already been built and construction work is now underway on 21 bridges in total. More than 30 new bridges will be built in the Olympic Park altogether
The new bridges will join up isolated pieces of land segregated by railway lines and waterways and forms part of the single biggest construction project the ODA is delivering.
Construction work has already been completed on the main north-south bridge and it is now being used by construction traffic.
