Olympic Games 2012: Transport

Volume 487: debated on Tuesday 10 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what steps he has taken or will be taking to ensure that hon. and right hon. Members will not be delayed in travelling to the House during the period of the London 2012 Olympic Games; and if he will make a statement. (255394)

I have been asked to reply as Minister for the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games.

The Olympic Delivery Authority's transport planning is well under way and aims to minimise disruption immediately before and during the Games for all of London's visitors, residents and commuters, including Members of Parliament.

The detailed planning now commencing will take this principle into account and will include detailed consideration of the central London area of Westminster and its environs.
