Olympics organisers reveal likely extent of congestion on Tube and rail network

London 2012 organiser Locog, Transport for London (TfL), Network Rail, train operating companies and the Association of Train Operating Companies (ATOC) have published full and final information on when and where the UK’s Tube and rail networks will be most affected during this summer’s London 2012 Games.

Up to three million additional journeys are expected to be made in London alone on the busiest days of the Games.

To help the transport system cope, Londoners and those who live, work and travel in the capital have been urged to plan and explore their alternative travel options. Games organisers want workers to considerworking at alternative locations, including home, stagger working hours, work longer but fewer days, take annual leave or swap to alternative forms of transport - including walking and cycling.

For those who still need to travel at peak times, TfL, Network Rail, the train operating companies and ATOC have now provided the complete and final picture on which stations will be most affected, and advice on alternative travel options, available at

Worst hit stations will be Bank, Earl’s Court, London Bridge and London Waterloo.
