The Final Dash

President Hu Jintao of China has said that preparations for the Beijing Olympics, the games begin on 8 August, have entered their "final dash".

Hu talked about the games as he was inspecting transport facilities in Beijing.


"Preparations for the Beijing Olympic Games have entered the stage of the final dash.

A good transportation environment is an important guarantee for a successful Olympics

Part of the plans for improved transport and air quality, is the removal from the roads of 45% of Beijing's 3.29 million cars.

Three new subway lines have been built, and there is a newly rebuilt and expanded railway station that will officially open on 1 August.

Hu went on to say:

"We don't just want first class facilities, we also must have first class management and first class service."

The organisers of the London Olympics, and indeed those in charge of our lamentable public transport infrastructure and Hetahrow, would do well to listen to what President Hu has to say.
