London Olympic Lanes on Google Maps
Today in the UK 170 miles of roads are affected by the introduction of the Olympic Road Network (ORN). For the duration of the Olympics some roads now include Games Lanes that can not be used by normal road users. Other roads have been closed and certain roads will be subject to temporary closure during cycling road races and the marathon event.
In order to help minimise the disruption caused by the Olympic Road Network a Google Map has been created that displays all the changes made to the road network (although I notice that the road closed at the end of my street for the duration of the Olympics isn't on the map).
The Temporary Road Changes Map includes a time-line so it is possible to check for temporary closures that will only be in force during certain game events, such as the cycling and marathon.
