A key footbridge linking the Olympic Stadium and aquatics centre has been completed, the ODA has announced.

The structure stands in the centre of the Olympic Park and spans the River Lea. It features a multi-coloured design inspired by colours of the London 2012 brand.

Dublin-based Heneghan Peng Architects, with engineer Adams Kara Taylor, were selected for the project following a 2007 design competition.

Their design features two permanent footbridges linked by a central blade-like walkway, creating a “Z” shape clad in stainless steel which - during the games - will be covered with a temporary multi-coloured rubber surface.

The bridge was built by Belfast firm Lagan Construction, and the complex steelwork was fabricated by Waagner-Biro.
