2012 Games Site Preparation

Road closures

Road, cycle and pedestrian routes across the Olympic Park

Preparation works are now underway on the Olympic Park site As part of these works it is essential to close some road, pedestrian and cycle routes on 2 July Details of routes that will be affected are:

  • Quartermile Lane
  • Pudding Mill Lane (north of the railway line)
  • Marshgate Lane (north and a section south of the railway line)
  • Carpenters Road (north of the railway bridge & east of the river)
  • Waterden Road
  • White Post Lane
  • Bndgwater Road
  • Temple Mill Lane is likely to close in the future as part of the Stratford City development (we will give you more detail closer to the time)

The 276 bus route, that currently serves the centre of the site, will be diverted via High Street Stratford, the A12 (East Cross Route), Wick Lane and Wansbeck Road A timetable for this will be available in the coming weeks.

We recognise that these changes may cause some inconvenience, but it is essential for the work to go ahead in order to deliver the Games and the Legacy benefits beyond.

All footpaths, towpaths, cycle ways and waterways within the Olympic Park boundary will also be closed on 2 July. We recognised during the public consultation that the Greenway and Lea Navigation were important to local people and, as far as possible, these will remain available as pedestrian and cycling routes during the construction period.

Advanced warning traffic signs will be erected around the area to inform road users of the closures.

After the Games a new and improved road network will be in place, as well as a greatly enhanced network of pedestrian and cycling routes into and across the Park.

The ODA is working closely with the five Host Boroughs and Transport for London to plan for these closures carefully and to ensure that any impact on the local community is kept to the absolute minimum.
