Games chiefs face public quiz of 2012 transport plans
OLYMPIC chiefs are to be quizzed tomorrow, Wednesday, on transport plans for the 2012 London Games.
Questions to be levelled at the public meeting include: Will the network cope with the extra pressure of the tens of thousands of visitors, and are concerns that controversial ‘Games lanes’ will have serious knock-on effects on traffic congestion and pedestrian safety being addressed?
The London Assembly’s Transport Committee will question senior representatives from the key agencies responsible for getting athletes, spectators and Londoners around during the Games.
Among those being questioned are: Hugh Sumner, Director of Transport, Olympic Delivery Authority;
Garrett Emmerson, Chief Operating Officer, London Streets, Transport for London and Richard George, Director of Transport, London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
