FT: ELL "to arrive on time"

Today The FT reports that it's full steam ahead for the East London Line and nothing can possibly go wrong - you hear that? Nothing!:

The extension of London Underground’s East London Line, a key part of the 2012 Olympic Games plans, should be able to avoid the pitfalls of previous big infrastructure projects and open on time, according to one of the project’s senior managers.

The project took two steps forward over the festive period with the closure of the existing line from December 22 for a complete overhaul and work being carried out to demolish a viaduct over Network Rail’s main line into Liverpool Street, which was obstructing the new line’s route.
