The ODA has launched a search to find 'world-class contractors' to develop the Olympic Park after the London 2012 Games.

The authority is advertising two opportunities to transform the parklands, infrastructure and venues not already covered by existing contracts – one for the south of the park and one for the north.

As well as removing temporary elements from the Games, the contractors will be responsible for converting venues and other buildings for their legacy use, completing the 250acre legacy parklands, and creating four football fields.

Once the ODA’s legacy transformation is complete the Olympic Park will be handed over to the legacy owners, primarily the Olympic Park Legacy Company and Lee Valley Regional Park Authority.
 
"Legacy was at the heart of the London 2012 bid and seventy five pence of every pound spent cleaning-up what was a former industrial area and creating the Olympic Park is an investment in the regeneration of east London," said ODA director of design and regeneration Alison Nimmo.

"The venues, sports facilities, parklands, allotments, roads, bridges, footpaths, cyclepaths, energy and utilities networks will form the foundation of the long-term development of this part of London for future generations," she added.

The Park will be renamed the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park after the Games.
