A cable car which will transport passengers across the Thames in East London will begin operation at the end of June. The cars will carry spectators and maybe even competitors across the Thames in a journey which will last approximately five minutes. There will be 34 cable cars carrying around 2,500 people every hour between the ExCel Arena and the 02 Arena.
The gondolas will travel 160 feet above the river and are part of the scheme to regenerate the local economy. The Emirates Air Line, as the cable car is known, will be £4.30 per single crossing, or £3.20 on the Oyster card.
The service will operate from 7:00am until 9:00pm and is set to commence on 28 June.
London Mayor Boris Johnson said: "On 28 June this spectacular new addition to London's skyline will provide a much needed new river crossing in the east of our great city."
