|Three to bid for Olympic 2012 landscaping|
The Olympic Delivery Authority is set to receive bids from Volker Fitzpatrick, McArdle and Skanska McNicholas to revamp the southern section of the parklands on the London 2012 site. Bam, which is responsible for the landscaping of the northern end of the park, will not enter the race for the contract.
This area of the park includes the main spectator entrance, Olympic Stadium and the Aquatics Centre. In legacy, it will be designed to retain the festival atmosphere of the Games.
The work, due to start in early 2010, will also include lighting, irrigation and drainage and delivering the London 2012 gardens stretching for half a mile between the Aquatics Centre and Olympic Stadium.
