We’ve known it’s coming for five years now and yet it seems that London’s transport network still isn’t ready to take on the burden of thousands of people descending on the capital for the Olympic Games.
With just three days to go until the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games we’re really beginning to wonder if London’s tube, overground and buses are really equipped to pull off the increased demand on their services.
Over the last few weeks we’ve seen a number of tube delays and suspensions, nothing new there we know but with such little time before the start of the event you think they’d be upping their game.
Just yesterday thousands of people were stranded due to issues on the Central Line after a track fault at St Paul’s left the line part suspended for most of the evening. The delays meant that many narrowly missed out on attending the rehearsal for the Opening Ceremony.
Meanwhile today London Overground is part suspended between Euston and Kilburn High Road causing yet more delays leading us to wonder if London is really ready? And if it’s not what does it mean for those who attending the Olympics and more importantly those who just want to go about their day-to-day lives? Guess we’ll find out in the days ahead…
