Transportation to London Olympic Park completed

London 2012 officials say construction on public transportation

to the Olympic Park site has been completed, more than a year ahead

of the Summer Games.

The Olympic Delivery Authority says the work was completed at

Stratford Station, which is the main transportation hub for

visitors to the Olympic Park in east London.

About $10.6 million is being spent on Britain’s transportation

for the Olympics. Ten rail routes including the high-speed Javelin,

Eurostar and Docklands Light Railway will serve Stratford.

London Mayor Boris Johnson says ”thanks to the Games and the

massive settlement we’ve secured from central government, London is

seeing a neo-Victorian age of investment in its transport

infrastructure.”
