A national campaign has been launched to ‘encourage the travelling public’ to ‘Get Ahead of the Games’.

Get Ahead of the Games‘ aims to show where and when road and rail networks will be much busier than normal and alternative transport options or routes available.

Transport for London has suggested people ‘work at different times or locations, teleconferencing rather than travelling to meetings, or alternative modes of transport including walking and cycling where practical’.

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson said:

“A tremendous amount of planning has been put into ensuring that when the 2012 Games get underway the capital is able to get on with business, enjoy the festival atmosphere and make the most of this unique occasion.

“‘Businesses should be able to capitalise on the thousands of visitors and Londoners should be able to get on with their lives. This campaign is key to the preparation and planning that will help everyone in London to profit from what promises to be a remarkable summer.”
