Vehicle recovery

Representatives from TfL and LOCOG recently gave a seminar regarding recovery of broken-down vehicles on the ORN and PRN and in Olympic venues.

In the interest of clearing the ORN as quickly as possible, a vehicle recovery fleet dedicated to the ORN, will be provided throughout the Games period, located at strategic points to minimise response times. The fleet will provide capability to remove HGVs, buses and coaches, as well as lighter vehicles. Hours of operation will depend on date and location but will be generally be between 6am and midnight on key routes.
