London Olympic venues over the progress of the construction cost less than the budget

International (reporter Tu Yun in the UK): British Sports and Olympics Minister Robertson said Wednesday that as of the day, the London Olympic venues and infrastructure has been completed 84% construction progress has been ahead of schedule. Although earlier reports questioned the organizers of the tight budget situation is difficult to fully realize its commitment to the most vulnerable groups, but Robertson seems that this concern seems misplaced.

Less than a month ago, the London Olympic venues and infrastructure, and the proportion is 83% complete, while the Olympic Park a few days leading to the main transport hub - Stratford Station project completed, this ratio increased to a percentage points. Robertson expressed satisfaction with the progress of construction projects.

Robertson said: "We have completed 84% of the (stadium) construction project , plans to be ahead of schedule, (completed) by the Olympic venues have been delivered to each of the Olympic Delivery Authority (London) Olympic Organizing Committee, Olympic Delivery Management Bureau about the dissolution of this summer, because when it has completed its mission, we are well ahead in that direction. "

London Olympics budget has always been the focus of the outside world, from the initial estimated expenditure of less than 30 million pounds (about 30 billion yuan) soared to 93 billion pounds, even once have heard the news of the budget still increases, which period of fiscal restraint so that in the UK tax people is quite alert. However, Robertson said, there is no indication that Olympic spending will exceed the amount budgeted.

Robertson said: "I am very pleased (to you) confirmed that, as a few days, we (expenses) slightly below budget, and we feel able to lower than 2005 budget expenditures to complete construction projects, when the work has just start, while the other, whether it is marketing, Olympic Village (the building), or the construction of the main venues in the financial aspects, and most are scheduled to walk. "

In addition, there is much public attention Olympic ticket issue. Olympic organizers are announced recently the first phase of Olympic ticket lottery results, due to purchase well over the number of tickets sold, more than half of the applicants were unable to do get any tickets. Many people on the way to the Olympic ticket sales expressed dissatisfaction that should take the first set come-but not now submit an application this way, the organizers by drawing lots. The people concerned, opaque Yaohao will lead to unfair results. In this regard, Robertson said:

Robertson said: "I do not know whether this will make everyone feel a little fun listening as (Olympic) Minister, I pass during the Olympics, but my family is not, so I online (for them) for a ticket As a related charge of Olympic affairs and has been involved in seven government officials to purchase tickets for the Olympic Games and ultimately did not buy anything, I think this situation is rare in other countries I know which of the frustration, But no one has a better way, if ticket sales start on Monday morning, nine, nine on each person must sit in front of the computer, for those who can not access the people at that point in time is not fair, but also likely to lead to (ticket) system failure, if by 'first set come' approach will lead to a lot of buying and then reselling the situation in the secondary market, so I admit that (the current ticketing system) is difficult (so that we are satisfied), but there seems no better way. "

London's Olympic bid when the Olympic legacy with special emphasis on the effective development and use, but the British media recently quoted in a report but then had to achieve the Government's commitment was questioned. This report by the "social justice center," wrote the report, although the Government is committed to helping the most vulnerable young people more involved in sports, but also in November last year launched a 130 million pounds of mass participation, but limited funds and short-term planning makes it difficult to achieve the Government's objective, because "for some people still do not know the specific content involved in several sports and help change the lives of vulnerable people, after all not the same thing." Report that the British Government set up the "ambitious" goal but an elusive "promotional gimmick."

In this regard, Robertson acknowledged challenges do exist, but he expressed the belief that government is able to fulfill their promises.

Robertson said: "The Olympic legacy (implementation) is not a challenge? Of course, but also a huge challenge for any Olympic host cities and countries alike. We are now at the stage of quantitative goals can be achieved, This is not an easy task, especially in the record to address the budget deficit of the time, but I believe we can deliver the Olympic legacy (related commitments), we have developed a program in the coming months, this program will be made ​​public. "
