Daily life in the borough

The Paralympic Games are here! They will run until Sunday 9 September and although smaller in scale than the Olympic Games, the roads and public transport across London will still be much busier than normal. Remember most London schools will have returned from their summer break by this time.

Take time to travel plan

Five top tips

  • find the travel hotspots
  • plan ahead
  • consider all your travel options
  • avoid the busiest times
  • avoid driving into affected areas

Roads and the public transport system will still be much busier than normal for the duration of the Paralympic Games.  Changes to how our roads operate, travel hot spots, and delays at underground stations mean you will need to continue to plan ahead to stay ahead during Games time, as no one day will be the same as the next.

The website Get Ahead of the Games provides helpful advice about using public transport at Games-time, driving and roads, and alternatives like walking and cycling.

See Transport for London’s transport summary for Kensington and Chelsea which provides specific information about travelling in the borough:

Paralympic Route Network (PRN)

Just like the ORN, the PRN connects the venues, accommodation and transport hubs across London. In Kensington and Chelsea, the A4 forms part of the PRN and there will be temporary traffic changes in place on this route, including the use of Games Lanes. All changes when in operation will be clearly signposted on the route. For further details about the PRN, including an overview map of the PRN in London and an interactive tool to find details about road changes in specific locations, visit the Paralympic Route Network information in the ‘Driving and Roads’ section of www.getaheadofthegames.com
