Work at the London 2012 Olympic Park is quickly gathering pace as officials have announced that the roof cover of the majestic Olympic Stadium has now been finished.

Following the completion of the VeloPark roof and ongoing work on the Olympic Village, the Olympic Stadium is now looking mightily impressive with the latest developments.

The 45,000 square-metres of fabric, put in place by dedicated abseilers, will cover two-thirds of the 80,000 capacity stadium.

The stadium will become the venue for the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games as well as many Olympic sporting events.

John Armitt, the chairman of the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA), told Inside The Games: “The Olympic Stadium is the most visible symbol of the huge progress that has been made on the construction of the Olympic Park and the infrastructure which is transforming East London.”
