Questions were recently asked at Area 3 about Planning for the Impact of the Olympics on Redbridge.

We have two Games Time Training Venues (GTTVs) in Forest Road - the Redbridge Sports Centre and the Cycling Centre - one at each end.

Concerns have been expressed about incoming traffic seeking to park near Central Line Stations in order to reach Stratford, about access to businesses along Forest Road during Security measures, about impact on local "business-as-usual", and about local transport disruption.

The following are reproduced as seen and are the responsibility of LOCOG and the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA).

Park-and-ride is being provided by First Bus

The two pick-up points are the Herts County Showground at Redbourn next to the M1
and at Lakeside

Book a parking space for up to £30 A DAY (depending on size of vehicle) and allow 2 and a half hours to get to the Olympic Park and find your event

There are a number of sites for Businesses, covering:
Making Deliveries
Receiving Deliveries

and advice on Public Transport
and Road Access

Security for Games Venues is being provided by Group Four _ G4S

Please can everyone continue to be vigilant and if you see anything suspicious please report it to Police immediately using the new 101 number. Redbridge is still experiencing burglaries that take place in the daytime and early evenings; although the figures are down from last year's figures, we must not become complacent. Please ensure that all doors and external entrances are securely locked and if you have an alarm please put it on when you leave your property.

If you see any recurrence of vans or vehicles patrolling your areas over several days and acting suspiciously then it is advisable to call 101 and give the registration numbers to Police. Many officers are out and about but you are our eyes and ears and your information has been invaluable through recent times, so your assistance at this time would be helpful.

Full descriptions of youths that cause AntiSocialBehaviour are also required, along with information on some robberies that have taken place recently which have been particularly unpleasant for the victim. Please advise all young people that they should exercise some caution when using their phones in public. If anyone sees anything relating to robberies then please report it and remember your do not have to give your name to Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111; by calling anonymously and giving us full details this may prevent this crime from happening to someone else. Sometimes we only need a piece to the puzzle!

Please remember you can also send information to your Safer Neighbourhood Team click! or the Borough Watch Manager Click!.

Please be assured that the Police and Neighbourhood Watches are doing all that we can but your assistance at this time would be most helpful.
