14 Nationwide publicity campaign

15 Detailed road ‘hotspot’ maps for each day

16 ...and the rail “hotspots”

17 Road Network

18 Olympic Route Network (ORN) Paralympic Route Network(PRN) Allows Games Family (athletes/officials/media) to get to events on time The ORN accounts for only 1% (109 miles) of London’s roads. ORN/PRN will only operate when and where they are needed The majority of the ORN/PRN will be open to all traffic. ­ In some sections of dual carriageway, one lane will be reserved for the Games Family traffic ­ Games lanes generally operate from 6am – Midnight ­ Games lanes live from 25 th July

19 How will the ORN work? Proposed road changes will operate 24 hours a day unless otherwise stated Parking, loading and waiting controls remain unaltered unless otherwise stated Time required for installing and removing some physical measures Active Traffic Management Variable Message Signs – to let you know what is going on

20 Alternative Olympic Route Network (AORN) will be used by Games family vehicles when road events are taking place Alternative routes will be open to general traffic Limited temporary traffic changes but will include changes to traffic signal timings Road Events and The AORN Lower impact than ORN/PRN But: The AORN may be used for unplanned situations (in the case of an accident occurring on the ORN, for example)

21 Enforcement/Compliance on the ORN On Street Enforcement – High visibility, uniformed presence to enforce Games Lanes and parking and loading regulations Camera Enforcement – Enforcement of Games Lanes and other moving traffic contraventions Vehicle Removals – Rapid response service to clear the ORN of vehicular obstructions Penalty charge – remains as current

22 Delivering Around Venues Local Area Traffic Management and Parking Plans (LATMPs) around competition venues to prevent spectator parking Managed by LOCOG Vehicle Permit Checks (VPC) -if drivers have the appropriate ID/paperwork they should be able to pass

23 Olympic Torch Relay The Olympic torch relay is a National Event over 70 days, starting this Saturday The Torch arrives in London on the 21 st of July. Avoid disruption, by making all possible deliveries ahead of this time, not simply ahead of the Opening Ceremony on the 27th of July Check the dates and route of the torch relay to see how it might affect your operation

24 For day-to-day business during the Games and passing through a LOCOG Vehicle Permit Check (VPC) your drivers need to be in possession of: 1.Driver licence photo card, 2.Headed company note paper with letter saying that the named driver is employed by the company, this letter must include a contact number for any queries, and 3.A delivery note or manifest (or PDA) with a delivery address identified.
