Olympic benefits will soon be seen.
A waterbus serving the Olympic Park will be launched by next spring says British Waterways.
Water Chariots will operate the service between Old Ford Lock and Limehouse Basin with a pick up stop at Three Mills. City Mill Lock is being restored for the Olympic Games. A new lock and water control structure is being built at Three Mills.
This will certainly benefit walkers. There are also plans to build a floating towpath to make the route more continuous.
