LEGACY - Greenway is losing it's charm

Greenway overlooks the part of the QE Olympic Park still being converted. It always was a poorly disguised major sewer & treatment plant, and the roads between the Greenway and the south side of the Stadium are the main site for the Stadium's conversion. But they have always maintained the area and given it interesting details that reflect it's history as well as making it a destination for culture. Sadly, it looks unloved and neglected. With graffiti, rubbish and vandalism spoiling the walk, long hoardings hiding and stopping access to garden meadows, road works exposing the sewer, and the old warm up track area now a wasteland full of puddles & mud. It has lost it's purpose and shows no sign of a legacy.
