The London Olympics Velodrome

The Velodrome is the first completed stadium for the 2012 London Olympics. This has coincided fortuitously with Google updating the satellite imagery for the site of the London Olympics.

The Velodrome’s concrete lower tier will have 3,500 seats located around the track. A further 2,500 seats will be suspended in two upper tiers within the two curves of the venue’s roof. In between the lower concrete tiers and upper tiers there will be a glass wall, giving spectators a 360-degree view across the Olympic Park and allowing people outside the venue to see the sporting action taking place inside.

After the games a mountain bike course and road-cycle circuit will be added to create a VeloPark for the local community, sports clubs and elite athletes.
