According to Network Rail, an additional 4,000 train services operated during the Games, and train operators ran longer trains during the day. Transport for London London Overground East London Line Docklands Light Railway North London LineJavelin The Emirates Air Line crosses the River Thames between Greenwich Peninsula and the Royal Docks Emirates Air Line River Thames Greenwich Peninsula Royal Docks TfL also built a £ 25 million cable car across the River Thames, called the Emirates Air Line, to link 2012 Olympics venues.It was inaugurated in June 2012, and crosses the Thames between Greenwich Peninsula and the Royal Docks, carrying up to 2,500 passengers an hour, cutting journey times between the O2 arena and the ExCeL exhibition centre and providing a crossing every 30 seconds. cable car River Thames Emirates Air Line Greenwich Peninsula Royal Docks O2 arena ExCeL exhibition centre The plan was to have 80% of athletes travel less than 20 minutes to their event, and 93% of them within 30 minutes of their event. Olympic rings marked on a street, indicating that the lane was reserved for the use of Olympic athletes and staff. TfL defined a network of roads leading between venues as the Olympic Route Network; roads connecting between all of the Olympic venues located within London. Many of these roads also contained special "Olympic lanes" marked with the Olympic rings reserved for the use of Olympic athletes, officials, and other VIPs during the Games. Olympic Route Network
