At present the Olympic Park reconstruction site incorporates the Bow Back Rivers. Boats are, therefore, barred from the area because of the Health and Safety rules that such construction sites must adhere to. Additionally, City Mill River remains blocked whilst the Docklands Light Railway and Crossrail Bridges are realigned. The Olympic Legacy Development Corporation is offering some boat trips to local residents so they can see the work being undertaken in the Olympic Park. However, the waterways themselves will not reopen until mid-2014.
