Drivers and other road users have been reminded that the Olympic Route Network comes into operation on Wednesday, 25 July.
To ensure the ORN is ready for the Olympic Opening Ceremony, final works will start on Friday (20th July) evening and last for five nights.
Transport for London (TfL) says “the majority of work will take place overnight” to keep disruption to road users to a minimum.
The 109 mile ORN will be used to get athletes, officials and media to their events on time.
Drivers who stray into the 30 mile ‘Games lanes’ which form part of the ORN face a penalty charge of £130. Vehicles parked on the lanes will be removed and drivers may incur a release fee of £200.
TfL is urging motorists to visit its website which contains a short film explaining how the ORN, including the Games lanes, will work.
Leon Daniels, TfL’s Managing Director Surface Transport, said: “London’s roads are now exceptionally busy and we are working hard to support a great Games and keep London moving. From next week and during the Games, roads around the Olympic Route Network will operate differently.
“Our advice to road users is clear – don’t get caught out. Avoid driving in central London, around the ORN and Games venues. If a journey by road is absolutely essential, plan ahead at GetAheadoftheGames.com and allow extra time.”
