Roads

How annoying! Hypocrites, er, sponsors can use ORN lanes!

Bizarrely, Transport Secretary Philip Hammond has had a go at Coca Cola, Olympic sponsors for 85 years, for deciding to bus their employees and guests to Stratford. Others have condemned them for breaking the 'Olympic Spirit'!

Keep right ORN....more fines, flashmobs and even guerrilla solicitors

Regarding London's Olympic Overload, @matthewBeard reports that Greenwich is upping the stakes on ORN fines by applying for the right to charge £1000, while other Boroughs are also seeking higher fees for recovering towed-away vehicles, taking their charges over the £500 in place at present.

London's Olympics Overload

London faces an Olympics overload. Transport is overloaded. Olympics travel chaos threatens London's transport system, London's motorists face £500 fines if they park in Olympic lanes, a £200 fine and a £300 fee to get their cars back from the pound, and the RMT is ticked off with TfL for not giving its Tube staff the same 'bonuses' as train drivers.

Canford Bottom 'lied to, ignored, humiliated, run over roughshod'

A local road improvement scheme at Wimborne in Dorset which was to have been delayed while an impact study was carried out following protests will now go ahead because the Government has belatedly admitted it is key to the Olympics Route Network.

No ORN speeding for 'normal' olympic family

Transport for London has said in a Freedom of Information response that it will be enforcing normal speed limits in the London Olympic Road Network (ORN). It has confirmed that the expected time for a journey from Park Lane, where the Olympic ‘family’ will be staying, to Stratford is ‘approximately’ twenty-five minutes, but there will be no exemptions for those using the ORN should they not be able to get to the Games within this time window.
