Paralympic Route Network travel for Wapping – from 24th August

Paralympic Route Network travel for Wapping – from 24th August

Paralympic Route Network road changes for Wapping will come into effect from 24th August 2012.

TfL signs on The Highway indicate the PRN is effective from 27th August, but actual enforcement of lanes and penalties begins at 6am on Wednesday 29th August.

Physical changes and barriers will begin to be reinstated from Saturday 24th August, so we must expect an impact on our journeys from this weekend.

Again TfL claim to have leafleted Wapping, but whilst delivery rates do appear better than previous attempts, many residents have still not received their letter and map.

The Paralympic Route Network and Wapping

The Paralympic Route Network overall is smaller than the Olympic Route Network, but as most Paralympic Games venues are in East London the overall impact on travel for Wapping could be as or more significant. Planning ahead is just as essential.

Most people, including those in Wapping considered the Olympic Route Network a huge success, but the impact of the Paralympic Route Network for E1W could be as or more significant.

Schools return midway during the Paralympics and although there are fewerGames events in total, these are held on fewer days and venues are almost entirely in East London.

Stay up to date with the latest information and updates from TfL both before and during this period at the official website www.getaheadofthegames.com and on Twitter @GAOTG.

Please plan ahead and help share the information with Wapping.

    Hi Meh, Probably should have written 2 sentences as it was intended to mean success as an overall contribution to making the Olympics run smoothly and making sure athletes and officials got to venues on time.

    But you’re totally right, no one in Wapping we know of thinks the junction changes worked well or were needed – it’s also especially disappointing because TfL should have removed the right turn restriction to Cannon Street Road between the Olympics and Paralympics – but this didn’t happen. Only explanation from TfL received a couple of days says they didn’t do it because they missed it!:

    “Unfortunately, due to the vast amount of civil engineering works that were scheduled for the inter-games period, this item was erroneously missed from the work schedule. We are extremely sorry for this oversight.”

    I’d love to know how you’ve determined that most people in Wapping think the ORN was a success – not a single person I know has had a good thing to say about the phasing of the Dock Street lights needlessly creating traffic!
