Hampton Wick & the Olympics

Hampton Wick & the Olympics
Olympic cyclists will be racing through Hampton Wick

Representatives from HWA attended the Olympic briefing meeting which was held on the evening of 19th April. This meeting was only the start of a series of presentations and we would urge you all to attend future meetings which will keep us informed of procedures during the Olympic events which are to come though Hampton Wick and surrounding areas.

The second phase of meetings was expected to be during June. The meeting was hosted by members of the council and local police were in attendance. Briefly, we were informed of a commitment by the council to ensure that all services normally provided will be delivered, although maybe on a different day/time. As you will probably be aware from information already delivered to your door, the disruption will be from 24th July – 1st August. More detailed information can be found on the following web sites:-
www.richmond.gov.uk/richmond_upon_thames_2012
www.getaheadofthegames.com
and the Official Olympic website www.london2012.com.

The good news is that railway stations will be operating normally, although journeys may take longer and will be very busy. Buses will be re-routed and there will obviously be road closures. There will be plenty of ongoing information available with further leaflets delivered to all residents within 400 metres of the race routes, a 4 page supplement in the Richmond & Twickenham Times and an information booklet in June. If you have any questions, and for further information, please attend future meetings which we will keep you advised of, or e.mail olympics@richmond.gov.uk.
