Olympic Road Lanes

I see that those of you in London are getting extra traffic restrictions in the way of special Olympic road lanes

From the link it says "the authorities had plans to lift the restrictions on the Games Lanes if there was gridlock." That seems a bit of a gross contradiction of intention. Isn't the whole point of Olympic lanes to create a freemoving traffic flow for the Olympic officials and competitors and avoid the Atlanta Games fiasco where competitors were in danger of missing their events?

buteman Knowing London cab drivers, I think they will do what they need to do in order to earn a living. I predict that they'll ignore the stupid rule about picking up or dropping off passengers.

And perhaps receive an hefty fine for doing so. If the demonstration and reports coming through today are anything to go by?.

No doubt, we will have to wait for further media reports, and see if there are any rethinks or further demonstrations?.

Looks to me as if there is a big mess up with the tickets. I wonder how many people were put off applying in the first place, because of all the bad publicity about the shortage of them. Lord Coe looked embarrassed to me when he was trying to explain the situation on TV earlier today. But he (and probably Beckham) will end up getting a knighthood after it has all died down.

The roads and bus-stops around Hampden Park have had a major 'make-over'..there's a new transport HUB for the olympic football matches being held there. I've noticed some new faces walking along the pavements...possibly Brazilian footballers...no kiddin'.
