Electrical courses news: Olympics construction work '88 per cent done'

People who took electrical courses and landed jobs in the preparation for the Olympic Games in London next year are nearing completion of the construction project.

According to the Metro, work on the venues being built for the global event is now 88 per cent finished, which should allow organisers to begin rehearsals for the sporting extravaganza.

Speaking at the recent International Olympic Committee conference in South Africa, Olympics minister Hugh Robertson said testing is set to begin to ensure the safety of all the buildings.

Event chairman Lord Sebastian Coe added that the Olympics will attract a great number of people from around the world to London.

"Both domestically and internationally, the demand for tickets has been phenomenal. It's been unprecedented," he explained.

Some 2.5 sq km of land in east London has been regenerated in the lead-up to the Olympic Games. Formerly abandoned industrial areas have been replaced with new green spaces, wildlife zones and state-of-the-art sports venues.
