I helped construct the Olympic Site, tell the story of the Greatest Show on earth, and am on site for the Legacy build until 2014.

This is my View of what's going on. These Views are mine and not of my employer or the LLDC/ODA/LOCOG

The Olympic Park Appears on the New A-Z as Complete.

The Olympic Village is not yet finished, but the 500-acre site has been included as complete in the latest version of the London A to Z.

It shows the main stadium, the aquatics centre, velodrome, basketball arena and all other areas in a fascinating insight into how the land near Stratford, East London, will be transformed.

The Olympic Development Authority said: "The construction will be completed next summer, a year before the Games begin. It is an encouraging sign of this progress that the Olympic Park is now being referred to on maps.

"We are not complacent as there is still a lot of hard work to be done." Sports fan Sam Williams, 33, from South London, added: "It makes the Olympics seem all the more real because it is finally appearing in the A to Z."

Stratford regional rail station has also been updated for the latest edition and Stratford International is featured.In 2008, the A to Z map showed the site as an empty space.

Back then, the ODA had just cleared the former industrial site. Norman Dennison, boss of Geographers' A-Z Map Company Ltd, said: "It is a real honour for us to be able to feature the entire Olympic Park for the first time."
