Paralympic Games • Opening Ceremony on 29th August 2012 and run until the Closing Ceremony on 09th September 2012. • They will be attended by approximately three million spectators. The transport challenges will be considerable, particularly as the school term starts during that period, which will create additional pressures on the transport system. The PRN will be in operation and will affect road users. Between the Games – the ‘transition’ period • Between the end of the Olympic Games and the start of the Paralympic Games, public transport will still be affected as thousands of athletes, officials and spectators will be leaving and arriving in London. The ORN and PRN will remain in operation in certain areas during this period, so roads will continue to be busier than normal.
