Quote of the day
'We will look back at the anxieties as a kind of Millennium Bug that never materialised,' says Mayor of London Boris Johnson. He refers to fears that travel in the capital will be complete chaos during the 2012 Olympics. 'Many say London will be gridlocked and expensive and traffic will be dominated by whizzing limousines of Olympic bureaucrats throwing up road spray into the face of multitudes of Londoners,' he quips. 'But most people travelling in most parts of London will not even notice that the route network exists.'
