To help London's road users plan ahead, Transport for London (TfL) has launched an online 'Temporary Road Changes' planning tool, enabling road users to see how the areas where they live, work and visit will be affected, by postcode.
Roads in central London and around venues will be exceptionally busy during the Games. The 'Temporary Roads Changes' tool means road users can see where there will be changes to the road network, allowing them to plan ahead.
The new 'Temporary Road Changes' tool currently includes information about the Olympic and Paralympic Route Networks (ORN/PRN) and the Road Event routes in London. More information, including traffic management around the Road Event routes and venues, will be added to the 'Temporary Road Changes' tool in early June.
Find out more about how the transport network will work at GetAheadoftheGames.com.
The Torch Relay, changes to the road network and local access and parking measures will change the way some areas and roads operate at various times throughout the Games.
With the Olympic Park, 13 other venues and Live Sites across the city, London will be much busier than usual.
Get Ahead of the Games roadshows are coming to your local areas to help you understand changes and to help you prepare.

During the Games, your deliveries may be impacted. Businesses and suppliers must consider how they will be impacted.
To help suppliers, TfL has launched an interactive web-based Freight Journey Planner (FJP). The FJP is designed to help freight operators plan their route for a specified size of vehicle, and identify where to stop legally. The area covered is within Greater London.
Users can select up to a maximum of 26 separate locations for each journey. An Estimated Time of Arrival is calculated for each route based on historic traffic information. Manage your deliveries during the Games>>
