Olympic Route Network published
21 September 2010
Details of the Olympic Route Network (ORN) have been published by London 2012.
The document, titled On time, outlines plans to enable athletes, officials and the media to travel safely and quickly between venues during the Olympic Games, while keeping the rest of London moving.
As well as where and when temporary Games Lanes will operate, the document details other traffic management measures that will be used, including side road closures, banned turns and changes to traffic lights and pedestrian crossings.
Roads open to traffic
Less than one per cent of the Capital's roads will feature a temporary Games Lane and the majority of ORN roads will remain open to traffic, with traffic management measures in place from 06:00 to midnight.
Clear signage and road markings will be used to indicate all measures and a penalty charge notice level of £200 is proposed so drivers comply.
Mayor of London, Boris Johnson said: 'Thousands of visitors from around the world will descend on our great city in 2012 and transport will be critical to ensuring we deliver a Games that London can be proud of.
'The Capital will be in the spotlight and temporary measures such as the Olympic Route Network will play a crucial role.'
Paralymic Road Network
During the Paralympic Games, the Paralympic Route Network (PRN) will operate in the same way as the ORN, but on a smaller scale. All roads will revert to normal shortly when the event finishes.
A consultation on the traffic regulation orders that are required to support the measures on the ORN and PRN will start later this year.
