Der erste Montag der Olympischen Spiele wurde mit Spannung erwartet. Was passiert, wenn die Besucher der Olympischen Wettbewerber auf den Londoner Pendlerverkehr treffen? Nach der ersten Belastungsprobe kann man ohne Zögern sagen: Nichts.

Straßen, Busse und Bahnen sind so leer wie nie zuvor. Anscheinend bestätigt sich meine Voraussage, dass die Londonerinnen und Londoner aus Angst vor dem Verkehrschaos von zu Hause arbeiten oder ihr Verkehrsverhalten stark anpassen.

Am 31.07.2012 gab es jdoch die erste größere Störung, die erhebliche Auswirkungen auf den morgendlichen Pendlerverkehr und den zum Olympiapark hatte. Aber dazu morgen mehr… 

[] Verkehr während der Olympischen Spiele 2012 – Tag 4, erster Kontakt mit dem Londoner Pendelverkehr

Verkehrsereignisse und Erfahrungen vom vierten Tag der Olympischen Spiele 2012 in London.

Der 30.07. war der erste Tag der Olympischen Spiele mit größeren Herausforderungen für den Londoner Verkehr. Am Wochenende mussten die Öffentlichen und das Londoner Straßennetz nur den Olympischen Verkehr absorbieren, gestern kam der Pendlerverkehr hinzu.

Und auch am ersten Arbeitstag in der Periode der Olympischen Spiele (am Eröffnungsfreitag war der Pendelverkehr schon vorbei) gab es keine größere Schwieirigkeiten. Mit dem britschen Premierminister David Cameron gab es sogar einen prominienten Nutzer des Londoner ÖPNVs.
