London Olympics Jeopardise Infrastructure

The ever ballooning costs of the London 2012 Olympics are threatening the funding of other more important infrastructure projects in the capital.

That at least is the view of Bob Neill MP, who was speaking on behalf of London mayor Boris Johnson. Mr Neill said that he feared that the government would let its commitment to Crossrail slide to fund the Games.

Neill said:

"With the Olympics the competition for funding for major infrastructure projects is tough.

It is important we all make a strong case for investment in London and make sure the pressure of the Olympics doesn't cause a back-slide on Crossrail

Neill was speaking at the launch of recommendations to prevent climate change by the Institution of Civil Engineers and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.

The question is, exactly what will be the legacy of the Games?
