The new cable car will become a vital piece of infrastructure in catering for the masses that the 2012 Olympics will bring, in addition to the general public in the busy city. In fact, by catering up to 2,500 passengers an hour the commuter traffic through the Blackwell tunnel is predicted to be cut by five minutes.
Using an electronic pulley system, the cable car carriages will traverse an airborne route that travels from North Greenwich across the Thames to Excel Exhibition Centre, an obvious nod towards Olympic spectator usability.
Mace will have the dual responsibility of constructing and running the important infrastructure piece for its first three years.
Coming in at a hefty £36 million, the transport system has faced some criticism regarding its efficiency and usability, but this latest backing and its digital fly through certainly offering reassurance to critics.
