London 2012: Tfl's advice to avoid the queues? Have a pint.

Transport for London Commissioner, Peter Hendy, has given a novel piece of advice to avoid the long queues at next year's Olympics. Have a beer before heading back home.

Tfl chiefs have recommended the innovative solution to queueing as the capital prepares to welcome an extra 5.3 million Olympic fans who will be certain to use the Underground as the main form of transport around London.

It is predicted, that up to an extra 3 million journeys will be made, on top of the 3.5m journeys already made by London commuters.

With concerns already high, the Tfl chiefs have thought of ways of staggering streams of spectators and employees from Dockland companies respectively, so as to ease the pressure on the 100 year old tube system.

With London Bridge station being the main link between east and central London, officials are recommending that on some days employers allow staff to work from home.
