A partnership has been formed to ensure that the Olympic Stadium in Stratford provides jobs and accommodates education and grassroots sport way after the Games finish.
The London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) and Newham Council have set up E20 Stadium LLP to manage the stadium after the Games and turn it into a major multi-use venue.
Daniel Moylan, chairman of the LLDC, said: "This stadium partnership with Newham Council will help to create a combination of local opportunities in employment, education and sport."
He went on to say that this is an example of how London is "further ahead in planning legacy than any previous host Olympic city".
A recent survey by the Institution of Civil Engineers revealed that the construction projects that took place in preparation for the London Olympic Games have raised the public profile of engineers.
Of the 2,000 people questioned, some 53 per cent no longer only associate civil engineering with building bridges.
