OLYMPIC TORCH IN LAMBETH THURSDAY
Thurs 26 July sees the Olympic torch depart from Camden at 6.48am and reach Lambeth at 12.10pm at the Denmark Hill/Coldharbour Lane junction from Southwark and travel down: Coldharbour Lane • Acre Lane (passing Windrush Square) • Clapham Park Road • Clapham High Street • Long Road • Cedars Road • Queenstown Road •
If you go out for a butcher's, be aware that the torchbearer will run with a special team from the Metropolitan Police Service - the Torch Security Team. They run in a bubble around the Torchbearer, no one should try and enter into that bubble whilst the convoy is on the move. This is for their own safety as much as the torchbearer’s as the relay is a moving convoy of motor vehicles. It’s the job of the Torch Security Team to stop people from trying to get into the bubble around the Torchbearer! Spectators are advised to use public transport and to leave their cars at home if possible. Some bus routes may be diverted, so expect delays!
There will be sections of congestion on these roads and pavements and high levels of pedestrian activity so regardless of your means of travel, it will likely be busy and slow moving. Visit the TfL website www.getaheadofthegames.com to check your journey.
Sorry but the torch map posted has been lifted from Southwark because Lambeth hasn't posted one!
