He said dismantling work had been launched, the tracks of the National Alpine Ski Center had been cleaned, the projects for external supporting pipelines, the Foyukou River Water Ecologic Corridor, reservoir water source protection, and contingency water supply had begun, and a 4.94-kilometer-long road for construction mobilization had been built. 

Yanqing has planned to build a Winter Olympic Forest Park in Zhangshanying Town and the scheme has roughly completed. 

"Zhangshanying Town will be built into a Winter Olympic town to present the green concepts of the games," Song said. 

According to the plan, by 2018, the National Alpine Ski Center will complete 60 percent of its construction, key structures of the Winter Olympic Games Village and the Media Center will see 50 percent of their construction completed, the U-shape structure of the National Sliding Center will be constructed and the Beijing ice sports training base will speed up construction.
