Transport for London has now launched its online journey planner for delivery drivers in London during the Olympic Games. As the area will be manic for the duration of the games, delivery drivers can use the handy tool to plan routes which avoid certain no-go areas and therefore optimise efficiency during the Games. The planner shows delivery drivers the exact spots at which they can make drop offs in case of road closures and will show routes of any road events being carried out and how these will affect delivery times.
From July, the site will be refreshed every five minutes with up to date traffic information, and any issues which may affect drivers, their routes or timings. Overall, the tool will be a godsend to many freight operators, but the general advice is still to try and keep away from the area if possible as conditions will be hectic for drivers.
