ODA looks at charter trains for Games jobs

The Olympic Delivery Authority is looking into chartering trains to get the thousands of workers needed to build the 2012 Games venues to the east London site.

Around 20,000 workers will be needed to build the venues on the Olympic Park such as the main stadium and the aquatics centre as well as the neighbouring Stratford City site. This will be home to a shopping complex and the athletes’ village. Construction will peak in 2010.

An ODA spokesman said: “We’re in discussion with Transport for London and other stakeholders on the possibility of chartering trains and bussing into site from local transport hubs.”

He said the authority was still in the early stages of looking into these options and no firm decisions had been made.
