Transport for London (TfL) is relaxing Olympic Route Network restrictions at a number of locations.
The 109 mile ORN is being used to get athletes, Olympic officials and media to events on time.
Non-Olympic drivers who stray into reserved Games lanes face fines of £130 per incident.
Retailers and businesses are being required to have deliveries take place outside normal business hours to accommodate the ORN. The capital’s boroughs have promised to adopt a “pragmatic approach” towards out of hours deliveries.
Pedestrian crossings have been removed and parking & loading bays will be suspended to accommodate the ORN.
TfL has now announced a number of relaxations to the Network, including the the reintroduction of pedestrian crossings at Lower Thames Street/ Southwark Bridge (west side) and at Old Billingsgate Market.
Other changes being implemented from Friday morning include:
- Taxis will now be able to turn left and right onto Westminster bridge from Waterloo
- The left turn for general traffic from Marble Arch to Great Cumberland Place will be reintroduced
- The left turn from Vernon Place onto A4200 Southampton Row will be reintroduced
- The Zebra crossing on Seymour Street will be introduced
Leon Daniels, TfL’s Managing Director Surface Transport, said: “We remain committed to keeping disruption to an absolute minimum and we continue to review and amend traffic restrictions whenever possible – to reduce the impact on road users.
“More alterations will follow as venues cease operation, and we’ll continue to keep Londoners and businesses, including freight, taxi and private hire drivers informed.”
