The final preparatory works on the Olympic Route Network (ORN) are being put in place this weekend. That means that London’s road network will look and feel very different soon.
The restrictions will apply from six o clock next Wednesday morning.
Commuters from the Meridian region will find that the ORN is a road network linking Games venues and other key sites. Normal traffic can use most of the ORN, although there will be temporary changes. Stopping or parking on the ORN will get you a £130 penalty charge and a possible towaway.
Some lanes on ORN roads will be reserved as Games Lanes and are for use by athletes, officials and the press. They will be for the use of Games vehicles only from 0600–midnight. For more information www.getaheadofthegames.com has all the detail. Best advice? Use public transport or a Boris bike!
