Transport for London (TfL) has launched its ‘Temporary Road Changes’ planning tool for the forthcoming Olympic Games. It is searchable by postcode enabling road users to see how the areas where they live, work and visit will be affected.
The ‘Temporary Road Changes’ tool currently includes information about the Olympic and Paralympic Route Networks (ORN/PRN) and road event routes in London. More information will be added to the ‘Temporary Road Changes’ tool in June.
TfL advises that motorists should avoid Central London and around the Olympic venues during Games' time and road events.
Following a year of consultation with residents, businesses, boroughs and other interested groups the ORN and smaller PRN have now been confirmed by the Secretary of State for Transport. These changes include banned turns.
Compliance with the road changes is key to ensuring the Games run smoothly says TfL. There will be up to 1,000 Olympic Family vehicles an hour travelling between key venues. Parking or stopping in the ORN will be restricted. When Games' lanes are in operation they will be for accredited vehicles only.
A penalty charge of £130 will be issued and up to 68 rapid response vehicles will be in place to remove any offenders. The Pound fee is £200. www.getaheadofthegames.com www.tfl.gov.uk/orn
