The Olympics 2012 organisers have released details of travel “hotspots” for those who live, work and travel to Windsor and Eton during the Games.
The following closures will be in effect between 7am and 5pm on event days:
- No access between A308 (Maidenhead Road) and Gallys Road,
- No access between A308 (Maidenhead Road) and Smiths Lane,
- No access between A308 (Maidenhead Road) and Vale Road,
- No access between A308 (Maidenhead Road) and Parsonage Lane.
In addition there will be no stopping rules enforced on several other roads between 7am and 7pm, and no loading in some roads around Windsor, 7am-9.30am and 12noon-3pm
Eton Dorney Rowing Centre is playing host to the Olympic rowing events, and the information provided gives a picture of areas most likely to receive heavy traffic from 27 July to 12 August (the Olympic Games) and 29 August to 9 September (the Paralympic Games). The site also gives advice on how to make your journey easier.
Not only should those who live, work and travel to Windsor heed this advice, but it’s also worth noting that the routes being used by the Olympics are also the most popular routes to Windsor Legoland. Anyone thinking of visiting Legoland during the Olympic Games would be well advised to take advice on when and how to travel to avoid heavy congestion.
Advice for local businesses is also available for help with managing deliveries and helping visitors and staff.
