Olympic update for routeing tool

PIE Mapping has updated its London Lorry Route Approver tool to include all the changes affecting London’s road network during the Olympics and Paralympics.

The online tool generates a compliant route suited to the size of the vehicle, avoiding width, weight and height restrictions. The new restriction data also includes Olympic and Paralympic Road Networks, temporary banned turns, road closures, changes to direction of flow, road events and restricted areas.

Once a route is planned, the online system submits the route to London Councils for approval to operate on those routes during the July and August Games period to ensure compliance with the London Lorry Control Scheme.
