There are less than six weeks to go until the Games. During the Games, London will be turned into a massive sporting and cultural venue. The public transport and road networks will be exceptionally busy. Roads in central London and around venues will be much busier than usual from the middle of July and road users are advised to avoid these areas.
A number of changes are required to create the Olympic Route Network (ORN) and the Paralympic Route Network (PRN). Physical changes will be made along the ORN, including installing temporary traffic islands and barriers to simplify junctions before the Torch arrives in central London.
To minimise disruption, the programme of physical works is being carried out over four nights, beginning 2100hrs on Friday 20 July and finishing the morning of Wednesday 25 .
Operation and enforcement of the ORN, including the Games Lanes, will begin on Wednesday 25 July, a couple of days before the Olympic Games Opening Ceremony. The ORN will cease to operate a couple of days after the Olympic Games and will not operate between the Olympic and Paralympic Games. A couple of days before the Paralympic Games, the PRN will be put into place.
