LEGACY LONDON

London

London’s 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games provide a catalyst for the long-term regeneration of London’s Lower Lea Valley and East End. Guided by the legacy masterplan, thousands of new homes and jobs will be created in and around the new Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, transforming a contaminated, under-used landscape into a new metropolitan quarter of London.

Dozens of permanent bridges built specially for the Games and legacy will help link existing communities in east London to the permanent parklands, venues and new development around the park. For the first time in modern Games history, the permanent sports venues and parklands will be embedded seamlessly within the urban fabric of legacy neighbourhoods and will play a lasting, integral role in the life of the local community.
