(Can we have a BXCDC, please?)

"The London Legacy Development Corporation today marked 100 Days to Go until the official opening of North Park, when it will welcome thousands of visitors back to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park for a summer of entertainment and events.

"Since taking control of the Park in November 2012, the Legacy Corporation has been undertaking a huge programme of work to transform the site and its iconic venues ready for public use.

"The £292m construction programme, one of the largest in Europe, is on track to deliver Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park – a new part of London to live, work, visit and invest. The Park will soon begin to re-open in phases as works reach completion, starting with the official opening of North Park in July 2013.

"This will include the Copper Box, London’s third largest arena at 2,743m2 (equivalent to 12 badminton courts), North Park Cafe and community space with a stunning new playground and open spaces for visitors to walk, play and enjoy."

Boris Johnson, Mayor of London, and Chairman of the London Legacy Development Corporation, said:
(tap)...(tap)...Is this thing on? Good Lord! ... OK, let's see what they've given me... This time last year we were putting the finishing touches on what was to become the greatest ever Olympic and Paralympic Games. Twelve months on, the long-term future of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is bright, dispelling the fears of white elephants and tumbleweed. (Unlike the Brent Cross Hammerson 'Dead in the Water' business! ... Now where was I?) With a world-beating summer of sport and music lined up, and as new schools, homes and neighbourhoods take shape, we are on track to deliver a lasting legacy for Londoners. ... to propel me into Number 10. ... Is that it? ... Well, I thought that went rather well, didn't it?
