Tokyo Olympic organizing committee President Yoshiro Mori warned of potential dire consequences to the transport operations of the 2020 Games after Tokyo Gov. Yuriko Koike announced her plans on the Tsukiji fish market Tuesday.

After months of haggling, Koike said she will redevelop Tsukiji in five years after moving the market to nearby Toyosu. The market's relocation was in place before Koike took office in August, but she suspended the move amid soil and air pollution concerns at the new site.

Mori hit out at Koike's long drawn-out decision on Tuesday, saying the delay in moving the market will almost certainly impact transport projects for the Tokyo Games, namely the No. 2 ring road that will connect the Olympic Park and the Olympic village with the International Olympic Committee hotels.
