London ready and under budget
The London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics are on track to be delivered under their £9.3 billion budget, with £476 million left in contingency funds, the British government said yesterday. A budget of £9.298 billion ($14.5 billion, 11.5 billion euros) was set in 2007 for the construction and delivery of the Games — almost four times higher than the original cost estimates presented at the time of London’s bid in 2005.
Culture, Media and Sport Minister Jeremy Hunt, whose role includes responsibility for this year’s Olympics, said it was “fantastic news”. —
