‘London Transport System is Working Well’: A Removal Firm’s Perceptive
ABINGDON, England, August 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –
The Mayor of London has announced that London’s transport system has been ‘working
well’ during the 2012 Olympics.
Many people living in London or visiting to watch the Games expected commuting chaos
and a logistical transport nightmare, as there would be added pressure on the transport
system to cope with an additional 695,000 spectators, athletes, coaches, staff and
However, Boris Johnson is reportedly impressed with the public transport system and
the UK is yet to experience any huge problems. Since the Games began, the lanes have been
reopened to regular traffic lanes as VIP guests are choosing to use standard public
transport routes to make their way to the Olympic venues.
Boris Johnson said he was pleased with the way transport systems such as the Docklands
Light Railway (DLR) and the Olympic Route Network (ORN), were operating as commuters’
worst fears of disruption and congestion failed to materialise
The pressure has been on London’s infrastructure to handle the numbers, transport
implications and extra administration. As a London based removals firm, Robinsons
[http://www.robinsonsrelo.com ] has witnessed slightly busier traffic than normal but
removal services have run fairly smoothly given the circumstances. The award-winning
company took on the experience and advice of its partner offices in two other recent
Olympic cities, Sydney and Beijing, which has helped to ensure house moves in and around
London remain unaffected.
The Olympic Traffic Lanes were expected to have a knock-on effect to delivery and
collection times throughout the capital and Robinsons has found that in the most part,
home removals have continued to run efficiently.
A lot of preparations were put in place prior to the Games; all Operations staff were
advised of the possible problems they would face, working hours were extended to evenings
and weekends, smaller trucks from across the national fleet were brought into the capital
and extra staff from across the Robinsons network were re-deployed as needed for the
duration of the games.
Anyone living in London and who is planning to move within August can rest assured
that their move with be free of any complications, with the help of the experts.
Robinsons Removals hope to utilise the provisions they put in place for the Olympics
as a basis for continual improvement both within the company, and for the benefit their
customers. Martyn Ferry at Robinsons said: “We always believe in putting our customers
first, and the experience we have gained through our preparations for the Olympics, has
enabled us to really concentrate on that value and make it the best it can be.”
