|A4 And A40 To Have 'Games Lanes'|
To ensure Olympic athletes and officials get to events on time
Both the A4 and the A40 will see the creation of special 'Games Lanes' during next year's Olympics to enable athletes and officials easier access to and from venues.
Thousands of competitors from all around the world will descend on London and Transport for London (TfL) are developing an Olympic Road Network (ORN) to ensure that they all get to their events on time.
The changes will come into effect two weeks before the Games which commence on July 27th, 2012 and will finish at the conclusion of the Paralympics on September 9th.
LBH&F Cllr Nick Botterill said: “The Olympic Route Network will undoubtedly cause disruption to motorists who already spend too long stuck behind the wheel, so we are pushing TfL to do all they can to minimise the disruption this will cause.”
Transport for London will be be holding a consultation on these temporary measures and holding a number of drop-in sessions where residents and motorists will be able to obtain further information including:
Consultation will take place in several phases.
