We thought long and hard about how best to provide helpful information in the run up to the 2012 Olympics. We have been liaising with a number of the authorities and transport groups to gain the best information that we can to help you plan your deliveries. We started out by designing our own web site of information but we have quickly been overtaken by some really helpful web sites that give you all the best real time information available.
London is going to be busy. They have sold 9m tickets and a further 9m people are expected to come to London to soak up the atmosphere. Even with the expected number of people leaving the city it will be a massive challenge for everyone to mitigate the impact that the games’ security measures and road closures will have on London’s road and transport network. Aside from the additional amount of people in the capital, a number of measures are planned by Transport for London to ensure the smooth movement of athletes, diplomats and media, including; dedicated lanes on some roads and partial restrictions on traffic between 09.00 and 24.00 daily.
Lots of work has been done and it is now our responsibility to cascade the information that we have to our clients and staff
What we have done on the following pages is to bring to you what we felt are the best web sites for information, explain the Olympic Route Network in more detail, with some great maps, bring together The Events Diary in one page so you can check progress daily, provide links to the best information that will provide real time information and explain to you what Bishopsgate & TENESO Europe SE are doing
