Olympic traffic congestion could be 33% higher

A leading supplier of traffic information services predicts that the Olympic Games could increase congestion in London by 33%

The report, based on existing traffic models, shows that core London routes will slow to an average speed of 12mph during July and August. The opening ceremony of the event even clashes with the busiest holiday getaway day of the year, July 27th, when traffic levels are already 30% higher.

In addition the first event after the ceremony is the Men’s Road Cycling Race which is scheduled to close roads in South West London and Surrey.
