Cable cars for London in time for 2010 Olympics

London may be receiving a new cable car system over the Thames River in the run-up to the 2012 Olympic Games after mayor of the capital, Boris Johnson, asked Transport for London (TfL) to devise a new way to make crossing the river easier for the public. Whilst TfL are considering new tunnels and ferry crossings in the long term, for now sights are set on following our European neighbours lead and introducing an urban cable-car system in the heart of London. The system would link Greenwich Peninsula to the Royal Docks, making it easily accessible for visitors and local people at the Olympic and Paralympic venues. Although the £25m investment needed is still to be found and planning permission is yet unattained, proposals claim that the cable cars would glide 50m about the waters, transporting 2,500 passengers an hour in each direction and be fully accessible to pedestrians, cyclists, wheelchair users and pushchairs.
