Olympic Games 2012: Transport

Volume 496: debated on Thursday 16 July 2009

To ask the Minister for the Olympics pursuant to the answer of 10 February 2009, Official Report, columns 1889-90W, on Olympic Games 2012: transport, what further steps she has taken to ensure than hon. and right hon. Members will not be delayed in travelling to the House during the period of the London 2012 Olympics; and if she will make a statement. (284791)

[holding answer 8 July 2009]: Further to my response to the hon. Member on 10 February 2009, Official Report, column 1890W, I can confirm that the ODA continues to progress and develop its planning of the transport operations that will keep London moving during the Games. As the London Olympic Games and Paralympic Games Act requires the ODA to keep its Olympic Transport Plan under review, the ODA intends to publish a revised plan in 2010 to update on the latest progress in ensuring safe, reliable and accessible transport for all London's visitors, residents and commuters—including Members of Parliament—over the duration of both the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games.
