The Olympic Delivery Authority has announced the appointment of Hugh Sumner as its transport director, responsible for the delivery of the transport infrastructure and services that will be required to host the London 2012 Games.

David Higgins, chief executive officer of the ODA said:

'Hugh's proven operational and strategic experience will be key to our successful working with the industry in planning and delivering transport services to meet the needs of athletes, spectators and London's travelling public during the 2012 games.

'The ODA will work with and through our transport delivery partners to deliver the best possible transport system for the games, one that leaves a lasting legacy for London and the country'.

Mr Sumner led on transport for London's bid from its genesis in 2003, his team at Transport for London developing the transport plans submitted to the IOC as part of London's successful bid. He has been acting director since July 2005 before which he was managing director of one of the infrastructure companies (Infracos) upgrading the Tube and director of passenger services at London Underground.
