There are just fifty days until the London Games but again today Commuters and tourists suffered fresh travel problems, with signal failures at Kings Cross St. Pancras and a burst water main flooded tracks at Stratford.
London's Central Line, expected to be one of the busiest during the Olympics was disrupted all evening yesterday and will be affected until lunchtime today.
Passengers were stuck on a stranded train after water flooded down a ventilation shaft at Stratford, in east London, on to the tracks and they had to be walked to safety through a tunnel.
A Transport for London spokesman said:
The flood of water spread through 800 yards of tunnel.Bob Crow, leader of the Rail Maritime and Transport union said:
There has also been disruption on three other lines due to signal failure at Kings Cross St. Pancras.
The latest problems followed delays yesterday on the Jubilee and Bakerloo lines after signalling and train problems.
