Stratford station will be the gateway to 2012 Games


Work on Stratford station in east London, a key transport hub for the 2012 Olympic Games, has been completed.

The redeveloped station has 10 Tube and railway lines and capacity has been trebled to handle 120,000 passengers at peak times.

However, speaking at Stratford station, Transport secretary Philip Hammond said he could not promise transport would not be disrupted during the Games and advised people to make contingencies.
