Olympics

Newsletters to help Surrey prepare for the Games

Residents and businesses within 100 metres of the Olympic cycling road race and time trial routes will receive a newsletter in the coming weeks to ensure they have all the information needed to prepare for the events.

The newsletters include maps of the route, details of road closures and advice on how to make the most of the race.

Helyn Clack, Surrey County Council’s Cabinet Member for Community Services and the 2012 Games, said: “Our aim is to make sure residents and businesses have all the information they need ahead of time to prepare for the Olympic events taking place in Surrey.

“We’ve been working hard for more than a year with everyone from residents and emergency services to local councils and community groups to ensure the success of the events while minimising disruption.

“I’d ask residents and businesses to read the newsletters carefully so any disruption they may experience is kept to a minimum as they will be directly affected by these Olympic events. The 2012 Games will bring huge economic, cultural and sporting benefits to the county and with a bit of preparation we can make everything run smoothly.”

Businesses will receive a tailored newsletter that includes tips and advice about how they can benefit from the events and how to plan ahead to reduce disruption.

The Olympic cycling road races will be staged on the opening weekend of the Games, with the men’s event taking place in London and Surrey on Saturday 28 July and the women’s on Sunday 29 July.

The Olympic road cycling time trials will be held on Wednesday 1 August.
