Development of the London Olympic bid is hotting up. A two-day consultation with 'stakeholders' takes place next week, with representatives from all the key groups likely to be affected by the plan for the lower Lea Valley.

Interestingly, the penny is beginning to drop that transport, which many have assumed would be a problem for the bid, is in fact a strength, even without the development of Crossrail. Why?

Because Stratford is connected to so many parts of the London Transport system already - Jubilee Line, Central Line, Docklands Light Railway, East London Line and, way before 2012, the Channel Tunnel Rail Link will be arriving there. Olympic day trips from Paris will be perfectly possible.
