Official Pudding Mill Lane Views

stratford station section of underground map Catching London Overground from Hackney Wick to Stratford, which will be the main station that Games visitors will flow through. Then on to the Docklands Light Railway DLR to Pudding Mill Lane. The official place to view the construction of the Olympic Park is situated here at View Tube.

The DLR line is going to be heavily used during the Games as many of the events are in the The River Zone, which is Excel and at Greenwich (photos to come). London Transport are also linking up Stratford with St Pancras via the high-speed Javelin – I will have to look out for it next time! olympic park from pudding mill lane olympic signposts workmen at pudding mill lane

Workmen and landscapers still hard at work on site.

Looking right of the Olympic Stadium, the rest of the Olympic Park is visible. The Orbit is to the left, the Aquatics Centre to its right and Stratford City (photos to come) in the distance.

Caught The Orbit reflecting in the landscapers van. he kindly allowed me to take a photo. It seems to have attracted a variety of opinions. Personally I have yet to like it. Here is its installations on the artists Anish Kapoor’s site.

Road To 2012

the road to 2012 photography exhibition

Came across the National Portrait Gallery’s Road to 2012 Exhibition, situated near the View Tube. Amazing large-scale portrait photos telling human stories of their Olympic Journey:

‘The National Portrait Gallery/BT Road to 2012 Project is capturing the journey towards the London 2012 Games and is creating a lasting record of the people who are contributing to this exciting event. From world-class athletes and those working behind the scenes, to people living and working in the Olympic host boroughs, the project celebrates stories of inspirational achievement.’

Really interesting project and there is a Flickr group for contributions.
