The Evening Standard are reporting tonight that the estimated cost of building the White Water Canoe Centre in Broxbourne, has doubled to £30 million pounds. Broxbourne White Water Canoe Centre is the intended venue for canoe and kayak slalom in the London 2012 Olympics,

The article goes on to suggest some concerns expressed by the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) of the course being a white elephant after the games.  However the BCU explain that they have long been looking for a venue for the London area.

Building work is currently expected to start in May 2009.
