As soon as London won the bid to host the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2005, plans were put in place to deal with the enormous transport challenges that this would present. Over the seven-year period that followed, Transport for London oversaw a huge number of upgrades and infrastructure improvements to Londons transport network. The Docklands Light Railway had its capacity expanded by 50%; the Central, Jubilee and Victoria lines all had major upgrades, and a major new transport hub was developed at Stratford. There were also significant expansions and improvements to the bus network, a facelift for Kings Cross Station and the construction of entirely new projects such as the cable car link over the Thames. Accompanying these construction projects, was a major publicity campaign and planning process to ensure that the thousands of visitors could travel to the games as swiftly as possible, while allowing ordinary Londoners to carry on their daily lives. Heavily illustrated and filled with a wealth of fascinating information, this book celebrates the activities of Transport for London during this period and will appeal to all those interested in transport and the Olympics.
