London 2012 Ltd have released plans for Olympic venues and the Olympic Park.
The Olympic Park in east London, lies at the heart of the London 2012 bid.
The 500-acre site in Stratford would provide a compact, secure and easily accessible home for the Games, seven minutes from central London.
Nine new venues would be situated within easy walking distance of each other, allowing competitors and spectators alike to experience the unique atmosphere of an Olympic Games.
The main 80,000-seat Olympic Stadium would host the Opening and Closing Ceremonies, as well as the Athletics events.
Work has already started on the world-class Aquatics Centre, which will include two 50m swimming pools and a diving pool.
The Hockey Centre would comprise two stadia with different capacities, plus a warm up pitch.
The Velopark would include the Velodome and a BMX track, while the four multi-sport arenas would be the setting for Fencing, Volleyball, Basketball and Handball.
The Park would also house the Olympic Village, providing accommodation for every competitor and official, with 80 per cent within 20 minutes of their event venues.
The compact , green site would also include a state-of-the-art media centre providing facilities for broadcast and print journalists from all over the world.
The best-ever Games transport system would deliver up to 240,000 people an hour to the Olympic Park by tube, train, bus and via park and ride schemes.
Full planning permission for the Olympic Park has already been granted, a decision that London 2012 Chairman Sebastian Coe called 'a major milestone'.
Lord Coe said: "If we win the right to host the Games next July, work could begin the very next day."
