TfL has published advice for coach operation near the Olympic park during the Paralympic Games.

The Paralympic Route Network (PRN) will come into operation at 0600 on Wednesday, August 29, the opening day of the Games. This includes 8.7 miles of Games lanes on routes between the City of London, the Olympic Park and other venues, including Excel, the North Greenwich Arena, Greenwich Park and Royal Artillery Barracks.

TfL asks operators to avoid driving on the PRN routes and near the venues, particularly around the Olympic Park in Stratford and on the A102 approach roads north and south of the Blackwall Tunnel.

There are strict parking enforcement measures around all Paralympic venues. Unless operators have pre-booked a set down or pick up slot at the venues, they should not attempt to drop off or pick up passengers at or near the Olympic Park or any other Paralympic Games location.

All drop off and pick up times, as well as parking, must be booked in advance by calling the contact centre on 0844 921 2012. Alternatively, visit the website www.firstgroupgamestravel.com . “Informal” setting down or picking up at the venues or nearby roadside is not permitted.
