Businesses in London and other UK cities are facing potential disruption during the Games due to a massive increase in overseas visitors, according to a website set up to advise about travel disruption during the Games.
According to getaheadofthegames.com, deliveries will be difficult during the Games due to restrictions on some of London’s major roads. Staff will have difficulties getting to work as all transport options will be affected. Boarding times at major stations are expected to be more than 30 minutes and severe overcrowding is expected.
The web site suggests that companies avoid non-essential journeys, plan deliveries in advance of the Games, stockpile goods where necessary, and ask staff to take alternative forms of transport, for example by bicycle or walking.
Whilst businesses near to Games venues will be the worst affected, businesses across London are likely to be affected to some degree.
Knowledge Train, which delivers PRINCE2 training in London, has put together its own light-hearted, fictional risk analysis of a business planning how staff will get to work during the Games. The cartoon is free to share and to re-publish, providing a link is given back to the original website (http://www.knowledgetrain.co.uk/).
