OLYMPIC bosses are investing £80 million to increase capacity on East London's crowded DLR rail network in time for the 2012 Games.

Cash has been found despite the credit crunch for more rail carriages.

That means an extra 33 million passengers will be able to travel on the network.

The Olympic Authority funding for upgrading to be completed by 2010 also includes building four new stops on the DLR network at Stratford High Street, Stratford International connecting Eurostar, Abbey Road in West Ham and Star Lane in Canning Town.
