Government questions Olympics public transport preparations

Transport commissioner Peter Hendy faced questions this morning from the London Assembly Transport Committee on Transport for London’s (TfL) plans for public transport during the 2012 Olympic Games.

The committee met at City Hall in London to discuss how TfL is dealing with challenges including planning for the Games, upgrading the London Underground and building Crossrail, while trying to find savings of £7.6bn by 2017-18.

Committee members were also set to question Hendy on operational issues such as managing road congestion, plans for the bus network and the future of the cycle hire scheme.
