Whilst site visiting earlier on in the week, I also came across this in the Royal Docks; the 'Emirates' airline, better known as the Thames Cable car crossing. I must admit I had doubts this would rise and be in place before the Olympics start next year, remembering that it will connect both the Dome and Excel centre (sort of), two venues staging Olympic events. As you can see however, construction is progressing very well with the northern pylon already topped out.
Here's another shot, with the docking station in the foreground. The Siemens centre is also in the picture; the building under construction and behind the docking station to the right with the slopped roof.
recently had the story of TfL releasing a new tube map with the cable car making its debut upon it.
