London ‘open for business’ during Paralympics but deliveries into Redbridge could take longer
London will remain open for business during the Paralympics despite the 36-mile road network for competitors and officials.
The network, considerably smaller than that in operation during the Olympic Games, came into effect from yesterday (Wednesday).
Deliveries into Redbridge could take longer with the Paralympic Route Network (PRN) focused around east London.
Games lanes, which are for athletes, officials and media only at certain times of the day, will be in place for 8.7 miles between the City of London financial district and the Olympic Park in Stratford.
Motorists are also being advised to avoid the A102 approach roads north and south of the Blackwall Tunnel.

London’s transport commissioner Peter Hendy said: “We have always had twin objectives for the Games of ensuring that everyone gets to their Games events on time as well as keeping London moving and open for business – this is what we’ll continue to deliver.”
Journeys and deliveries can be planned at www.getaheadofthegames.com. The PRN will run until September 10.
