London 2012: Olympic Route Network to be decommissioned tomorrow

  • 13 August 2012
  • By Chris Druce

The Olympic Route Network (ORN) will cease operation at midnight on Tuesday (14 August).

ORN signage will have been removed in full by Wednesday morning, with London’s roads returning to normal ahead of the start of the Paralympics on 29 August.

Peter Hendy, London’s transport commissioner, says: “The ORN has served its purpose helping us to deliver a great Olympic Games and keep London moving.

“As we promised, Games lanes were operated flexibly throughout the Games with only 40% in operation at any one time.”

While the ORN was a 109-mile route with 30 miles of Games lanes criss-crossing London, the Paralympic Route Network (PRN) is much smaller in comparison.

The PRN will have 8.7 miles of Games Lanes, and is concentrated around East London. Areas and venues  in use for the Paralympic Games comprise the Olympic Park, Excel, North Greenwich Arena and Park, and the Royal Artillery Barracks.

Transport for London is putting the PRN in place from 25 August, although it will not be activated until Wednesday the 29 August, which is the opening day of the Paralympics.

Penalty fees of £130 for those that break regulations will be in place for the PRN, with a £200 fine for anyone parking on the routes.

The PRN and Games lanes will end operation one day after the end of the Paralympics on 10 September.
