The Olympic Delivery Authority has said that more than a fifth of the land required for the 2012 Olympics has been cleared, and 95% of demolished material is being recycled. Financial Times.

The ODA said that demolition has so far accumulated more than 10,000 tonnes of material, all but 5% of which is being recycled into Olympic Park construction. The ODA aims to clear most of the land in east London by the time of the Beijing Olympics next year.

When the authority gains full possession of the Olympic Park site in July, it will begin a nine-month demolition programme, levelling 256 buildings.
