Transport for London unveils £25m cable car plans


Local government body hopes new Thames crossing will be operational in time for the 2012 Olympic Games By Pete Hayman


Transport for London (TfL) has unveiled plans for a new £25m cable car link crossing the River Thames between Greenwich Peninsula and the Royal Docks. The privately-funded project


will result in a new link spanning the river at a height of more than 50m (164ft) – similar to the nearby O2 Arena. TfL hopes the route, which


will be available to pedestrians and cyclists, will be completed in time for the 2012 Olympics and will enable visitors to travel


between the O2 Arena and ExCeL in five minutes. The plans will see the cable


car providing a crossing every 30 seconds and carrying up to 2,500 passengers per hour, although the plans are subject to planning permission and funding being secured. London mayor Boris Johnson


said: "Passengers would be able to drink in the truly spectacular views of the Olympic Park and iconic London landmarks, while shaving valuable minutes from their travelling time."


The planned route would link the O2 Arena with the ExCeL venue


Government announces National Parks budget cut By Pete Hayman


The Department for Environ- ment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) has announced that funding to national park authorities is set to be reduced by 5 per cent in 2010-11. Plans to cut grants allocated


to national park authorities form part of a bid to save £162m, which will contribute towards wider government efforts to save £6.2bn.
