Olympic Route Network parking fine U-turn

  • 16 March 2012
  • By Chris Druce

Hauliers delivering into London during the Olympic and Paralympic Games will not face increased parking fines, after London’s mayor vetoed a hike in PCNs.

Operators had faced a £200 fine if they parked on the Olympic Route Network (ORN) during this summer’s Games.

However, London Councils, the association for London Boroughs, had planned to extend the £200 parking fine beyond the ORN.

However Boris Johnson has now ruled the existing £130 parking fines will be sufficient, with no extension beyond the ORN required.

A spokeswoman for the mayor says that with recent increases in parking fines in the capital he had decided “enough was enough”.

Natalie Chapman head of policy for London at the Freight Transport Association welcomed the decision, which the association had written to the mayor to oppose.

“London is going to be an extremely difficult environment to work in during the Games with the added complication of the Olympic restrictions,” says Chapman.

“More PCNs would have put at risk [the ability for operators to make] deliveries into London during the Games. Anything that reduces this risk is good.”

CM publisher Road Transport Media is holding a crucial Summer Freight Planning Conference at Wembley Stadium next week (22 March). Places for this must attend one-day event that will offer practical advice on delivering during the Games are filling up fast, so book now.
