Images released by the Olympic Delivery Authority reveal the progress being made on the construction of the Olympic Village in east London

Building work is now under way on all of the residential plots to be used in the 2012 games and some of the buildings are approaching full height.

Each of the 11 residential plots is the size of a football pitch and made up of six to eight buildings in a rectangular layout around a courtyard area.

Other work in progress includes the site of the Allford Hall Monaghan Morris-designed Chobham Academy, an education campus to be built within the Olympic Village with spaces for 1,800 students aged three to 19, and the installation of new electricity, gas, water, drainage and district heating services between the sites of the new housing blocks.

The ODA said: ‘We are seeing the building blocks of a brand new community for east London beginning to take shape.

‘The strong start we have made on the Olympic Village site over the past year puts us firmly on track to deliver a high quality new development for generations to come.’
