Thames cable car work to start in summer


Work to build a £50m cable car across the River Thames in London, linking two Olympic venues, will begin this summer.

Transport for London said it was "striving" to complete the connection before next year's Games but warned this would be "an extremely challenging timeline for a complex project".

It will run from the O2 arena in North Greenwich to the Excel exhibition centre at the Royal Victoria Docks.

It will be part of the Oyster card network but fares have yet to be set.
