West Ham 2012 congestion measures introduced

Planning permission has been granted for the construction of a range of temporary measures at West Ham station, designed to ease the flow of passengers during the London 2012 Games.

The planned works at the station, announced by the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA), will include a temporary footbridge over the eastbound track of the District & Hammersmith and City Lines and a walkway leading people to Manor Road.

The measures will allow spectators to bypass the station itself, taking them directly on to the Greenway walking route towards the Olympic Park. It is also hoped the measures will reduce disruption for commuters and residents.

Work is scheduled to begin next year, with the station remaining fully operational during the period.

There are also plans for the construction of some permanent works, including an improved ramp and stairs up to the Greenway.

West Ham station will be one of three used as ‘gateways’ by spectators during the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
