2014CANDIDATECITY54OLYMPIC REVIEWMOTIVATION FOR SELECTINGKEY INFRASTRUCTURETo achieve its vision, Salzburg based its selection ofvenues, villages and infrastructure on the principles ofunity, athlete comfort and convenience, transportsystem alignment, logistical efficiency and lowenvironmental impact through existing and temporaryfacilities. With the distinct advantage of having bid forthe 2010 Winter Games, Salzburg was able to takethe IOC 2010 Evaluation Commission Report as ablueprint for improving its new plan. By following theIOC's guidance and reconfiguring its venue selection,Salzburg 2014 was able to eliminate the longdistances that so often separate Olympic ice andsnow events and ensure ease of access by aligningall but two of its venues along the high capacitycorridors of the A1 and A10 Autobahns or rail lines.In simplifying its vision, the Salzburg team hascreated a highly compact plan with two villages in theheart of two major venue clusters that are only 40minutes apart with the sliding events basically inbetween. By grouping the ice events in the city and the snow events in the mountains andstrategically placing its villages near the centre ofeach cluster, Salzburg was able to create a plan withaverage village-to-venue travel times of 12 minutesfor all competitors. The entire plan is only 55 minutesend-to-end and offers the Olympic Family the mostcompact setting for the Winter Games of the lastthree decades. In striving for the ultimate WinterGames model, the Olympic Village in Salzburg is largeenough at 4,500 beds, to unify all the athletes in onelocation. The second Snow Village in the mountains ata minimum of 1,600 beds provides completeconvenience for the competitors who prefer to stayclose to their competition venues. The overalldimension of the plan makes it possible to have asingle Medals Plaza for all Olympians in the heart ofthe city in a dramatic architectural platform that spans the Salzach River. Driven to host a Games with a minimalenvironmental impact, Salzburg emphasised existingvenues in its selection. Eight out of the 11 venuesselected (73%) currently exist and many regularlyhost major events on the world cup circuit.Recognising the critical importance of consolidatingmedia operations, Salzburg also chose to place itsMain Media Centre at the Salzburg Messezentrum,located in the Olympic Ice Park (a venue precinct) and ranks as one of the leading exhibition and tradeshow facilities in Austria. ?RightA map showing the proposedlocations of the venues in2014 OlympicWinter GamesCandidate CitySalzburg
