Olympic Games 2012: Construction

Volume 488: debated on Friday 27 February 2009

To ask the Minister for the Olympics pursuant to the answer of 17 February 2009, Official Report, column 2273W, on Olympic games 2012: construction, whether the Olympics Delivery Authority predicted the cost implications for the velopark budget of moving the velodrome. (259001)

[holding answer 26 February 2009]: The Velodrome was moved slightly to the west to help with the design and layout of the wider cycling facilities to be built in legacy. The Olympic Delivery Authority was aware of the generally poor ground conditions. However, the VeloPark budget could only be adjusted when the full extent of these conditions was known.
