The full force of the Olympic Route Network and the Controlled Parking Zones come into force this week. Here are some local examples. This is looking down over the A2 near my house. All very clear. Some other parts are not so clear but I am planning to largely leave my car at home this summer! Andy says that North Greenwich station-the one at the dome, has lots of soldiers roaming around and also giant tubs filled with sand-to stop vehicles maybe? I may pop down there tomorrow to have a look. I completed my own Olympic marathon of washing and house cleaning today so feel a trip out may be possible tomorrow!
Where there was free parking, there is now very definitely not. I can't imagine they will manage to tow away all the cars that don't have a permit, but I didn't take any chances. One of our neighbours thinks the whole thing is a con and so doesn't have a permit, while another thinks the borough of Greenwich will make a tidy profit from the whole thing, but has got some visitor permits for his family.
This little sign has nothing to do with the Olympics, I just liked it.
This car is exhibiting a comprehensive range of memberships and permits. The Olympic one is the square one up at the top. The Greenwich one is so you can use the tip. I used to have one but don't now, and they have not stopped me yet.
This is how Tiger feels about the whole thing.
Not very interested and very hot and lazy!
She looks as if she might watch a bit of telly later though.
If she can be bothered.
Back with pictures of Dungeness tomorrow. We went there on Saturday after the torch event. Such a beautiful day! I found some interesting things, one of which I still have not been able to identify, so hopefully you can help me.
