The Athlete's Village has been completely redesigned. The country club was moved to the other side of the road (the one in the top left of the picture with the tram tracks) and the capacity of the village was dramatically increased.

News from the organising committee:

Without releasing any names, the ASC and YOCSG has announced that the opening ceremony will feature some of the biggest acts in the world. One has been described as a "superstar." Several acts have already confirmed their availability and Yorke's 101.9 Bay FM has confirmed they will broadcast the entire opening ceremony live and commercial free.

Not to blow my own horn, but it's gonna be fantastic. *picks up own horn and blows*

Not to blow my horn..... but I have a similar, if not more in-depth plan well into the works in Perthshire for around the same time bidding.


study This should be interesting

A new indoor arena has been built to replace the rather low capacity sports centre. In order to make room for it, WaterWorks has been moved to the other side of town near the fairground and concert ground.

Yorke Arena will now host the basketball tournament to avoid overcrowding and time constraint issues in Providence.

Olympic Park Metro Light Rail Station has been replaced with a higher capacity and much more aesthetically pleasing model.

With all these changes, I thought it best to provide a new aerial view of Olympic Park.

Thanks! Since I posted these pics I've added proper parking lots to the venues. Olympic Park also has a new, large parking lot - I had to divert the railway line to fit it in. Smile

Yorke Railway Station has been upgraded. Two new platforms added, allowing for greater capacity and smoother operations:

Thanks, Peter! I probably shouldn't admit this, but it was coincidence. They built that themselves, so I marked it "historic" so it would remain.

The old regatta centre has been demolished as it was woefully small. An new artificial lake has since been built in Stancroft to accommodate the rowing and kayaking. In order that the small town of Stancroft was not cut off, the railway line had to be diverted. The new lake is temporary and will be drained at the conclusion of the games and the landscape restored.

Click to enlarge images:


The new artificial lake stretches for 2.2Km
