On my trip to London in January, I was treated to a quick taxi tour of the Olympic construction site before heading out to the Active Travel Show. The east side of London is currently under construction in anticipation of the big event this summer.

With access to cars open, we drove in, got out to take photos along the way and were really excited to get this rare glimpse of the work in progress. Our presence thought didn’t make everyone happy. Our tour caught the attention of the local security forces. On our way out, we were stopped.

¨Crap. They are going to make me turn over my camera,¨ I thought.

After a quick talk to the security folks (and probably seeing all of us with our conference badges around our necks), they let us go without much hassle. O I only found out later that there had been some security issues at the site. So, the authorities were more than a little curious about who was on the grounds snapping photos.

Anyway, here are a few of the exclusive photos from the construction site.
