TfL holds consultation on Olympic road closures in Tower Hamlets

The public get to have their say this month on proposed road changes to accommodate next year’s Olympic Games in Stratford.

To make sure athletes and officials get to events on time, an Olympic and Paralympic Route Network will be put in place from June to September next year, with changes including separate lanes for official Games vehicles, closures of access roads and changes to signalled junctions.

Transport for London wants to hear views on the part of the network, which will include the A1203, that will link west London to the Olympic Park and other east London venues including the ExCel Centre.

They have written to residents and businesses within a 400 metre radius of that part of the network and are holding public forums at the Wapping Community Group and the Aberfeldy Neighbourhood Centre amongst other venues from next Monday.

Mayor Lutfur Rahman said: “TfL’s plans will mean significant changes to the way in which people can move around and across the borough, and I want to make sure that residents and businesses understand the impact this will have.”

Consultation regarding other parts of the network is promised in the coming months.
