London 2012: Railway depot cleared

13 October 2008

A railway depot at the heart of the Olympic Park has been completely cleared to make way for the construction of a new pedestrian land-bridge between the Aquatics Centre and the Olympic Stadium. The huge bridge will be the biggest in the Olympic Park and will be the main gateway for spectators getting to events in 2012. Thornton’s Field, a railway depot, also needed to be dismantled to allow access for construction vehicles to get to the stadium island while the Olympic Stadium is being built. The film of Thornton’s Field shows the site before dismantling began, and afterwards. Video copyright: ODA
