Notice 10/12: Olympic Route Network and Paralympic Route Network

22/08/2012

The Olympic Route Network (ORN) and the Games Lanes along the ORN
ceased operation at midnight on Tuesday 14 August 2012, enabling athletes,
officials and the world’s media to leave London after the Olympics ended.

The final works to reinstate pedestrian crossings and remove any temporary
signs, Olympic Rings, barriers and other measures from the ORN that are not
required for the Paralympic Route Network (PRN) were carried out between
Wednesday 15 August and Sunday 19 August.

Paralympic Route Network

The Paralympics take place between Wednesday 29 August and Sunday 9
September and, throughout this period, the PRN will be in operation to ensure
that all athletes, officials and the world’s media can get to events on time. The
PRN is much smaller than the ORN with just under 9 miles of Games Lanes.
As with the ORN there will be electronic roadside signage (Variable Message
Signs) advising motorists when the Games Lanes are in operation, as well as
when they can be used by Games vehicles only and when they are open to all
traffic.

The physical build of the PRN will begin overnight on Saturday 25 August, but
will not come into operation until 06:00 on Wednesday 29 August, the opening
day of the Paralympic Games. The PRN and Games Lanes will cease
operation and enforcement one day after the end of the Paralympics at
midnight on 10 September, to aid the efficient departure of athletes, officials
and the media.

As was the case for the ORN, TfL will be monitoring the network constantly
and will only activate the lanes when absolutely necessary. Drivers should
continue to follow the guidance given by the Variable Message Signs located
at regular intervals across the network.

Penalty Charge Notices (PCNs)

If you drive in one of the Games Lanes during operational hours, you will
receive a penalty charge notice (PCN).

Penalties can, of course, be challenged through the representations process;
this is outlined on the penalty which is the same process for PCNs issued
