Lane closures so Olympians make Games on time
OLYMPIC rings marking lanes for athletes and their families on central London roads will come into play next fortnight.
The 30-mile lanes are currently being sketched out with white lines and rings to help Olympians reach the Games on time.
But the so-called Games Lanes will not be closed until July 25 when drivers could be fined £130 for straying into the paths.
Road painting began on July 1 and has been carried out overnight to limit disruption.
Up to 1,300 athletes and their families are expected to travel through key spots every hour and drivers are urged to avoid central London from mid July.
Mayor of London Boris Johnson said: "Following the unveiling of the Olympic Rings on Tower Bridge, the rings on London’s roads really bring home how London has begun its transformation into a massive sporting and cultural venue."
