TfL’s ultimate test during the 2012 Games

Issue 3 2012  •  25 June 2012  •  Peter Hendy, CBE, London’s Transport Commissioner

This summer, the world’s spotlight will settle on London with the staging of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. In the biggest event the capital has ever seen, tens of thousands of the world’s greatest athletes will arrive in one of its finest cities to put their sporting ability to the ultimate test.

As the capital’s transport authority, we know that the 2012 Games will present Transport for London (TfL) with its own ultimate test. Our challenge is to ensure that those competing, watching and working on the Games can move around the city quickly and safely, and that all the daily journeys that have no connection to the event can be completed with minimum disruption. Around 800,000 spectators and 55,000 athletes will be travelling to and from the Olympic venues on the busiest days, along with Games officials, sponsors and members of the media who all need to get to events on time. On the busiest days, we are expecting an additional three million journeys on the public transport network against a backdrop of 12 million journeys which are made on London’s public transport network every working day.

TfL’s detailed planning and testing means we are confident we will meet our twin objectives of helping to deliver a great Games and sporting spectacle for the capital and the country, and keep London and the UK moving. We do, however, recognise the scale of the task.

Delivering for London

Issue 2 2006, Past issues  •  23 June 2006  •  Peter Hendy, Commissioner of Transport for London (TfL)

After being appointed London’s transport commissioner in January this year, I was immediately asked – “how does it feel?”

The answer, then and now, is an immense sense of challenge, yet a confidence we can deliver. The challenge is to lead Britain’s first truly integrated transport authority through a period of major change and growth. The confidence comes from a lifetime working with the dedicated staff who are committed to delivering better transport for London.
