LONDON : The International Olympic Committee's chief inspector said Thursday preparations for the 2012 London Olympics were "on the right track" after his team spent three days visiting the construction sites.

"We can confirm that London 2012 is on the right track," Denis Oswald, the chair of the IOC's coordination commission, told journalists.

"We had an opportunity to see the (Olympic) Park and for many of us it was the first time since May last year and we were deeply impressed by the progress made.

"The stadium is impressive, also the Olympic Village," he added.

"We know that everything is on time, even ahead of schedule" more than three years before the Games take place, Oswald said.

The IOC delegation inspected the state of building work at the "big five" venues in the east of London, including the main stadium, Aquatics Centre and velodrome.

Oswald said the terror attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team bus in Pakistan last month had not left him more concerned for the safety of the Olympics in London, where suicide bombers killed dozens on the transport system in 2005.

"In this country, you have a long experience with terrorism," Oswald said. "We are convinced that everything will be done so that the Games are safe."
