Planning applications to construct a £25M cable car network over the River Thames for the London 2012 Games have been submitted by Transport for London.
The new system will transport passengers some 54m in the air from North Woolwich Peninsula to Royal Victoria Dock.
Three tower constructions are being proposed in the applications, two of which will be at Clyde Wharf and the south of the Queen Elizabeth II pier near the O2 Arena.
Two-storey cable car stations will be built on both sides of the river, and will include drive rooms, ticket offices and concourses. Passengers will access the cable cars from the first floor, while the ground floor space will be used for retail purposes.
The scheme, which was unveiled in July, is expected to be entirely funded from private finance.
Applications have been submitted to the London Borough of Greenwich, the London Borough of Newham and the London Thames Gateway Corporation. It is hoped the outcome will be known by January 2011.
