Watch out for Olympic lanes
20 July 2012
The Olympic Games is now just a matter of days and the final touches are being completed around London in preparation for the opening ceremony next Friday (July 27th).
One of the main logistical changes that have been put in place by Transport for London (TfL) is the Olympic Road Network (ORN) which has seen a number of lanes designated solely for traffic heading to the Games.
While this is highly beneficial to help deliveries travel easily to the Olympic site, for the average motorist it can be seen as a hazard as drivers can receive fines of £130 if they are caught using these lanes.
The Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) has advised road users to keep an eye on the electric signs that will provide up-to-date information of when they can use the ORN sections.
Kevin Delaney, IAM head of road safety, said: "The problem with the Games Lanes is that London's road network runs at, or very close to, capacity almost all day, almost every day of the year."
