Welcome to Peter Hendy - London Transport's New Boss

Peter Hendy London Transport's new boss looking happy - that won't last longI don't envy his job

Peter Hendy the new London Transport Commissioner starts work today:

"Peter Hendy was Transport for London's managing director of surface transport before stepping up to the top job of Commissioner after the surprise departure of Bob Kiley." says Yahoo! News

"At the top of Hendy's "to do" list is likely to be making sure the transport infrastructures connected with the London Olympic Games are in place.

One of the key reservations of the Olympic selectors was concern that London would not be able to transport all the athletes and spectators to the various sporting sites (
my views on this here).

Early signs that some underground train drivers might engage in industrial unrest during the games will be an added worry."

There's a surprise. Good luck Peter, you'll need it!
