Plans for giant, lit-up dome approved for Olympics site

Post by Brian »

Plans for a giant, lit-up music venue in east London have been approved, despite complaints from residents.

As forecast by the Bladerunner Movie?

The huge dome near the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park would be one of the biggest concert venues in London.

At a height of 315ft (96m) and covered with LED lights, the proposal prompted fears it could blind passing train drivers and keep local people awake.

The London Legacy Development Company (LLDC) approved the plans on Tuesday.:<unquote
