Olympic planning has paid off, says FTA

7th August 2012

The Freight Transport Association (FTA) has praised the effective planning that has gone into managing London’s roads during the major sporting disruptions of the last week.

It comes after it was revealed that a mix of careful planning and warnings from Transport for London (TfL) led to a 17 per cent drop in traffic levels on roads in the capital.

This statistic comes as welcome news to those who had previously feared that the introduction of the Games Lanes and Olympic Route Network would lead to travel chaos for motorists and logistics firms alike.

However, according to the feedback received by the FTA from its members, the experience has been wholly positive, with many firms noting that not only are deliveries being made on time, but in some cases ahead of schedule.

Natalie Chapman, FTA’s head of policy for London said: "With the world’s biggest peacetime logistical event taking place in the capital, the industry has been working closely with TfL to ensure that essential deliveries can get through – and the years of planning have paid off."
