I have had many requests from viewers asking about how London's 2012 Olympic Village is getting on. I am pleased to say that, as this video shows, there has been a vast change since I visited the site last summer. I took the opportunity to start at the same place as I filmed from last year then cycled along the canals that surround the Olympic village site to give a full perspective on the building works as well as reveal a 'hidden' london of peaceful canals and waterways. This episode starts with a map of the Olympic Village but if you would like to cross-reference, head to the Google map linked ot this video.You will see the location is next to "Pudding Mill Lane DLR". This is a Docklands Light Railway station which has existed for some time but now finds itself in the heart of the Olympic village site. Although the Google aerial photography has not yet caught up with the building works, you can still clearly see the main roads and canals surrounding the site. This episode was filmed on Monday 2nd March 2009 - about 1240 days to go...!
