London's Olympic Stadium is being transformed

Work has begun at the London Olympic Stadium (Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park Stadium) to remove the floodlight paddles and transform it into a year-round multpurpose venue that will deliver a lasting sporting, cultural and community legacy in east London.

All 14 of the floodlight paddles, which weigh 500 tonnes in total, are being removed so a new roof – twice the size of the original at approximately 45,000m2 – can be built. At 84m at its deepest point, it will be the longest cantilevered roof in the world; it will cover every seat in the stadium, and improve the acoustics and spectator experience for football matches, other sporting events and concerts.

Once the roof is in place, new floodlights suitable for a multi-use venue will be installed. These will be a fully integrated part of the new roof and will incorporate the existing lighting system.

Work on the stadium will be completed in spring 2015, ahead of the Rugby World Cup matches taking place later that year.

The new roof, along with new retractable seating in the lower bowl, are key to ensuring the stadium can be used throughout the year to host a range of events. The roof will help protect spectators from the elements and an innovative seating solution will enable close pitch-side views for football, rugby and other pitch sports while retaining an international-class running track for use every summer.

As part of its multi-use legacy plans, the London Olympic stadium will host five matches during the 2015 Rugby World Cup and will be the permanent home of West Ham United Football Club from 2016. The stadium will also become the new national competition stadium for athletics in the UK, hosting regional and national age group championships, as well as elite international events including the annual IAAF Diamond League meeting. The venue will be used for other sporting, cultural and community events as well as a range of community benefits for local residents.

The stadium is a key part of wider plans for Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park which will see 6,800 homes built across five neighbourhoods and the creation of over 9,000 jobs.
