Games to test London transport

London - London's transport officials are warning commuters to brace for potential delays on roads and the subway on the first working day of the Olympics.
Monday will see the first real test of the host city's transport network, as spectators and tourists heading for the games join the city's workers during rush-hour. The games opened on Friday night.
Sporting events will take place in venues across London, from the Olympic Park in the east to Wimbledon and Wembley Stadium in the west.
Transport for London, which runs the capital's public transport network, warned commuters to avoid multiple key subway lines and urged them to leave extra time for their journeys.
London's subway, the Tube, saw some delays and suspensions last week, while road traffic was also disrupted by Olympic lanes reserved for athletes and officials.
