Work To Commence on London Stadium

Work on the construction of London's 80,000 seat Olympic stadium for the 2012 games will start in the next two weeks, according to the BBC.

When the games end, the current plan is for the stadium to be turned into a 25,000 seat community venue.

Strangely enough, given the shambles of the budget, construction is actually going to start 3 months ahead of schedule.

A cynic might raise the following caveats:

1 Given the shambles of T5 and Wembley, the contractors will need all the time that they can get in order to finish their work in time for the games; this is bound to run over schedule.

2 By starting work now, the contractors lessen the chances of anyone revising the budget and design.
