London could have Thames cable car in time for the Olympics

MAYOR OF LONDON Boris Johnson revealed yesterday (Sunday 4 July) plans for a spectacular cable car crossing of the Thames between the Greenwich Peninsula and Royal Docks.  The proposals being developed by Transport for London (TfL) would provide a privately funded fully accessible link for pedestrians and cyclists which would cut travel times between the O2 concert arena and ExCeL exhibition and conference centre to around five minutes.  The cable car would cross the river at a height of over 50 metres providing spectacular aerial views with a crossing every 30 seconds carrying up to 2,500 passengers per hour in each direction.  www.tfl.gov.uk
