Olympic lanes have been painted in the streets of London ahead of the 2012 Summer Games.
Work commenced in London on Sunday to create the dedicated road lanes that will enable athletes and VIPs to avoid traffic congestion in the English capital during the forthcoming Olympic Games.
Workers began marking out the lanes and were set to start making adjustments to traffic lights.
Most of the lanes, which are marked with the Olympic Rings, are set to start operating on Wednesday July 25th, two days before the Games' opening ceremony.
There will be around 30 miles (48 kilometres) of restricted lanes which will form part of the Olympic Route Network (ORN), described by Transport for London (TFL) as "a 109-mile (175-kilometre) network of roads connecting key venues, accommodation and transport hubs across London."
Great if you're a VIP, but for the rest of London - enjoy life as a sweaty sardine riding the underground!
