Our Transport Committee has written to the Mayor in relation to some concerns that have recently been raised about transport for the 2012 Games.
The Committee wants the Mayor to provide more information about the recent closure of the M4 between junctions 2 and 3 due to the crack on the Boston Manor flyover and the contingency arrangements should it happen again.
The Committee is also seeking lessons learned from the recent test event at London Bridge; more information about whether cyclists using the Games lanes will be fined; whether taxi drivers can pick up and set people down on the Games lanes; and the closure of the Lea towpath.
On 9 July the Committee received a letter from Network Rail about issues relating to the Gatwick Express following a hearing on 14 June about 2012 transport. The Committee also wrote to CB Ellis to express concerns about the closure of a pedestrian walkway between Hay's Galleria and London Bridge Station - we have now received a response and the walkway has since re-opened. All of these documents are available below.
