An Olympic plan for 2012

24 June 2005  •  Author(s): Hugh Sumner, Project Director, Olympics Bid Team, Transport for London

London is one of five cities bidding to host the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2012. One of the major strengths of the London 2012 bid has been our ability to set out clearly the variety, extent and frequency of the transport network that visitors to the Games would use. London’s proven track record in moving large numbers of people around the capital for big events reinforces this position.

Visitors to the London Games can look forward to a network that will safely and quickly move them from one venue to another. An investment of £10 billion by Transport for London (TfL) during the next five years, which is already paying dividends and will continue regardless of whether London wins the nomination in July this year, will mean visitors and Londoners will be able to speed from one venue to another whether they arrive by train, plane, Tube, bus, foot or bicycle.
