4 TfL Games Team A Host City Commitment 3 A temporary route between competition venues and accommodation For athletes and others that make the Games happen Olympic Route Network (ORN) is c.1% of London’s roads c.1/3 of the ORN make up the Games Lanes Operate a couple of days before the Olympics

5 TfL Games Team Road impacts Bloomsbury Media Hub Olympic Route Network and Paralympic Route Network Transportation for athletes, officials, media and others working at Games in LOCOG procured vehicles. Across London. Formal phase of consultation mid November Central London Zone Increased walking routes introduced to ensure safety of1000s of extra visitors, requiring extra traffic restrictions Around Hyde Park, Green Park and St James Park. Road Events eg Cycle Road Race or Marathons On 7 of 16 Olympic Games and 2 of 9 Paralympic Games days, all but one on weekends, will displace ORN traffic on to an alternative route 4

6 TfL Games Team ORN and PRN 5 ORN – Alternate ORN – Venue-specific route ORN – Core route

7 TfL Games Team ORN and PRN Allow LOCOG Games Family (athletes/officials) to travel swiftly between accommodation and venues Proportionate measures to improve general traffic flow Potential traffic management measures to ensure reliable traffic flow: – Changes to traffic signal timings – Restricted turns – Suspension of parking and waiting bays, pedestrian crossings – Temporary Games Lanes MYTH: ORN/PRN will be closed to traffic TRUTH: The ORN/PRN will be open to traffic. In some two lane sections, one will be reserved for the Games Family only. Different conditions on different days 6

18 TfL Games Team Some cultural event numbers….. 17

19 TfL Games Team Deliveries into secure areas Some areas will need to be secure during Games time Venues run by LOCOG Secure areas will include some hotels Seperate security regime for Westfield Stratford 18

20 TfL Games Team Enabling solutions Current freight movements are regulated by:  Traffic Commissioners / VOSA (Operator License regime)  Planning Conditions  Noise Abatement controls/Local Environmental Health  Kerbside TROs We will work with the appropriate authorities in order to help you Reduce, retime, re-route and revise mode 19

21 TfL Games Team The 4 R's Reduce Re-time Re-route Revise Mode –Same message to businesses and freight Remember – one size doesn’t fit all! 20

22 TfL Games Team Reduce Right first time Pre-order & pre-deliver Postpone non-essential deliveries Stockpile Preventative maintenance in advance Temporary stockrooms Resource sharing Consolidation 21 Although it needs to be borne in mind that there is likely to be an increased demand for some products…… which may make it hard to ‘reduce’

23 TfL Games Team Re-route Alternate routes –Avoid congestion hotspots –Avoids traffic management restriction Increased journey times –Congestion –Restrictions 22

24 TfL Games Team Re-time Change the Delivery / Collection Point: –E.g. Back door instead of front –Side street or staff car park Change the Delivery / Collection Time: –06:00-00:00 loading restrictions Change the Delivery / Collection Day: –Venue specific stretches of the ORN / PRN –Days/times of least congestion Security delays 23

25 TfL Games Team Linking it all up Despite best efforts, unconstrained demand will exceed capacity in some areas Planning ahead will be vital to ensure the Games Family, spectators and workforce arrive at events in good time, and that London and the UK continues to function ORN: TfL: Postcodes intersected by the ORN, road events and Central London Zone : – 24
