Keeping Going During the Olympics

Despite a great deal of publicity, I still hear worrying anecdotes that some firms are not prepared for the traffic problems surrounding the Olympics.  There is likely to be disruptio, especially in the area around Wembley Stadium. TfL have been trying to make people aware of this for months, with some help from Brent Council in terms of leafleting and door knocking.  There will be two more roadshows for people in July.

The basic advice is:

  • Try to get non-perishable items (e.g. paper) delivered in advance of the games period.
  • Where there are perishable items (eg food) try to get deliveries arranged outside peak traffic times
  • Understand where the Olympic Road Network (ORN) is, so that it does not disrupt your business
  • Encourage staff to work at home during busy times if possible.
