Londoners Expect Olympics to Bring Transportation Legacy

A new survey of Londoners shows that improved transportation is seen as the most likely long-term benefit from hosting the 2012 Summer Olympics.

The improved links to public transit are seen as the major long-term benefit of the games, according to the survey.

"Topping the list of what Brits thought would be the most important long term benefit of the Olympics for Britain was improved sporting and leisure facilities (21%) followed by increasing Britain's profile in the world as a good place to host other big international sporting events (16%).

Improved transport links came third with 12% – this rose to 23% in London and was perceived to be the top long-term benefit for those living in the capital."
