Further funds required for OS

It has been reported that a further £50m is required to complete the required conversion works at the Olympic Stadium.

According to reports this morning, builders Balfour Beatty have requested additional funding over complications to the complex roof structure, which is causing the project to be far more costly than first anticipated.

It is believed the additional funds required will be paid for by Newham Council and the Government, with the club not expected to pay towards the extra investment.

A spokesman for LLDC has said “The project still has close to two years to run and we are in no doubt Balfour Beatty can deliver the programme as planned. This is a complex project and there are always ongoing discussions about specific elements within it.”

West Ham are expected to move into the stadium for the start of the 2016/17 season, making next season our last at Upton Park.
