Businesses and residents along the routes that will be used during the London 2012 games' triathlon, road cycling, race walking and marathon events will, as of this week, be given detailed information on how they are to be affected and how they can plan to be able to stay ahead of the games.

The road events of the London 2012 Games will take place on routes that pass through Westminster, Kensington & Chelsea, Hammersmith and Fulham, the City of London, Wandsworth and Richmond upon Thames, Kingston upon Thames and Surrey, and because of this, the local areas will be considerably busier than is the norm in these locations.

Details of when and how these events will have an impact on the road network in those areas is to be provided via a campaign of road shows, letter drops and publicity which are to be delivered by London 2012 and London boroughs in conjunction with Transport for London (TfL). Road events in London are to take place during seven of the 16 days in which the Olympic Games are happening, as well as on one day of the Paralympic Games.

Fleets, including company car drivers who may be driving vehicles that have been leased out on contract hire schemes, are being advised to avoid the relevant areas on completion days, but information given by the TfL should be used to plan careful routes if a journey is necessary, and extra time allowed for.
