Piss and Wind
As with all plans of mice, men and the ODA things do rather tend to fall apart when confronted with reality.
Such fate befell the grandiose plans of the ODA to construct a 120M wind turbine at the North end of the Olympic park, which was meant to supply 20% of the Olympic park's energy during the games.
David Higgins, CEO of the Olympic Delivery Authority, confessed to defeat the other day stating that the scheme was "no longer feasible".
Seemingly new health and safety measures had meant the original design was no longer viable, and the preferred bidder had pulled out.
No other contractors had come forward.
Another Olympic dream bites the dust!
