LONDON (AP) " London 2012 Olympic organizers say they have met government targets by cutting $41.2 million from the event budget while keeping the project on schedule.
The Olympic Delivery Authority has confirmed that the overall cost of staging the games is now $14.2 billion.
Britain's coalition government ordered the cuts as part of its measures to reduce the national budget deficit.
The ODA said Monday it saved about $19.8 million on construction site security, $16.8 million on the broadcast and media centers and $4.6 million on changes to the basketball arena and velodrome.
