Question

Regarding MQT 64/2011, can you brief me on what discussions you had with developers about using under-developed land for Park & Ride facilities for the Olympics, specifically in the Nine Elms area?

Written answer received 8 November 2012.

Pre-Games analysis suggested that the combination of public transport provision, alongside planned ODA operated Park & Ride sites and direct coaches services, would be sufficient to cope with spectator demand. As such, there were no specific discussions with developers in the Nine Elms area about using under-developed land for Park & Ride facilities.

Experience of demand during the Games demonstrated this analysis to be accurate.
