Olympics 2012

January 18, 2012 by staff 

Olympics 2012Olympics 2012, London 2012 Olympics travel chiefs have strongly denied new research suggesting the opening weekend of the Olympics will create a “perfect traffic storm”.

Holding the opening ceremony and the men’s road cycling race on a busy holiday weekend will increase the risk of traffic troubles on 27-29 July, says traffic information provider Inrix.

Transport for London said the report was full of factual inaccuracies.

The Inrix study was based on incorrect or out of date information, added TfL.

The Olympics and Paralympics are expected to draw 11m spectators during seven weeks, and Transport for London has published heatmaps showing expected congestion levels during the Games.

It has also issued travel advice and route planners for people travelling in London during the Games to help minimise congestion.

But, with 3m additional journeys anticipated on the busiest day, there are concerns London’s narrow streets and already near-capacity transport network will not be able to cope.
