London's transport system ready for 'extreme' demands of 2012 Olympics
"Keeping the capital moving during the 2012 Olympics will be an enormous challenge for the organisers, according to a London assembly report which gives warning that transport conditions will be "extreme".
"The report says the Olympic Delivery Authority calculates that on the nine busiest days there will be more than 1m Olympic-related journeys on public transport. The busiest day will be Saturday 4 August, when almost 700,000 ticket holders will be travelling to central London and the Olympic Park at Stratford for the triathlon in Hyde Park, football at Wembley, the 20km race walk on the Mall and the climax of the second day of the heptathlon in the Olympic Stadium.
"Transport for London (TfL) and the authority have launched a campaign targeted at companies, promoting the idea it will be "business as unusual" during the Games, but urging them to consider the transport restrictions that will be in place."
