Revisions to Olympic masterplan revealed

The Olympic Delivery Authority has this morning outlined a series of changes to the masterplan that won the 2012 bid.

The organisation argues that these are basic alterations that will streamline the delivery of the Olympic Park, designed by Edaw, HOK Sport, Foreign Office and Allies and Morrison.

The changes to the masterplan have been agreed by all involved with the bid-winning designs and will, according to the official line, result in no cost increases or delays.

The most significant changes are:

Landscaping

More close alliance with the existing topography of the whole Olympic Park area

Broadcast and Media Centre

Moves from the Stratford City plot to a site at Hackney Wick in the Northwest corner of the park

Volleyball

To accommodate the move of the Media Centre, the Volleyball courts are moved of the site to Earl's Court in East London

Basketball

The temporary basketball courts are moved to a site northwest of the stadium

Fencing

The fencing facilities are reduced to one hall rather than two and moved to a temporary site near Stratford City

Hockey

The hockey pitches are moved to a site nearer the Olympic Village

Cycling

The velodrome moves south of the A12 to make space for a new Paralympic tennis centre
