Construction On $10M London Olympic White Water Legacy Project Underway
Work has started on a £6.3M ($9.8M) development project at Lee Valley White Water Centre in North London "as part of legacy plans for the London 2012 Olympic venue," according to Tom Walker of LEISURE MANAGEMENT. The works, scheduled to be completed by early '14, will include improving the int'l competition-standard facilities with the "creation of a new gym and physiotherapy suite" housed in an extension to the existing center. Spectator facilities will also be improved with a new outdoor classroom, "more catering provision and extra space to find shade, shelter and seating in a new pavilion overlooking the competition course." There will "also be a training and administration facility" for use by the British Canoe Union (LEISURE MANAGEMENT, 2/19).
