[London 2012] Verkehr während der Olympischen Spiele 2012 – Tag 5, erste größere Probleme

Dieser Artikel ist Teil der Serie Verkehr während der Olympischen Spiele 2012 in London. Eine Übersicht über alle Artikel finden Sie hier.

In den ersten Tagen der Olympischen Spiele 2012 in gab es keine größeren Zwischenfälle. Dies hat sich gestern geändert. Am Morgen des 31.07.2012 gab es in der U-Bahnstation Leyton einen Feueralarm. Daraufhin wurden alle Züge der Central line zwischen Leytonstone und Liverpool Street gestoppt. Damit war auch der Olympiapark nicht mehr mit der Central line erreichbar. 

Leider blieb unklar, ob der Feueralarm in einem Zug oder in der U-Bahnstation ausgelöst wurde. Die Londoner Feuerwehr wurde wegen Brandgeruchs gerufen, konnte aber bis 09:30 Uhr keinen Brandherd entdecken. Die Feuerwehr verließ die Station wieder gegen 10:20 Uhr. Dennoch benötigte Transport for London sieben (!) Stunden, um den die Central line ohne Verspätungen fahren zu lassen. Die Bedienung der Linie war für über zwei Stunden eingestellt.

Am Nachmittag fiel der zwischen und teilweise aus.

Gegen Abend kam es an den Stationen Cannon Street und London Bridge zu massiven Verspätungen und Überfüllung. Die Bilder von wartenden Passagieren in den Stationen ab 18 / 19 Uhr sind wirklich beeindruckend. Bitte anschauen!

Ich persönlich habe gestern gerlernt, wie schnell die Stimmung umschlagen kann. In den ersten Tagen waren die Londoner voll des Lobes für Transport for London, gestern hätte man die Verantworlichen am liebsten gelyncht. Ich habe auch das erste Mal Tweets bewusst nicht zitiert, da die Inhalte wirklich unter der Gürtellinie waren. Fand ich persönlich nicht mehr lustig…
