Athletics: LONDON CAN LOCK IT UP.
The site at Pickett's Lock will be presented to the International Amateur Athletic Federation when UK Athletics submit their bid for the championships on April 3 in Paris.
Earlier this week the IAAF indicated that London was the sole contender to stage the championships after Perth and Berlin failed to meet a deadline for the submission of bids.
Subject to approval from world athletics' governing body, UK Athletics are expected get the green light to go ahead with their plans.
Dave Moorcroft, chief executive of UK Athletics, said: "It will provide a great legacy for the future of athletics."
The Government have pledged pounds 60million for the development of the new stadium.
