Get Ahead Of The Games: New Transport Website Launched

If you're not fortunate enough to be able to work from home or spend your commuting hours in the pub this summer, you might need to have a look at the brand new Get Ahead of the Games travel website.

Launched today by TfL, LOCOG and UK-wide transport agencies the site highlights Games travel 'hotspots' to prepare the public for a challenging few weeks of public transport.

Have a play with the interactive map for London. Move the date slider back and forth through the Olympic fortnight and you get an oddly pleasing / vaguely disturbing bloom and shrink effect as the overloaded tube stations apparently explode.

Nearer the time, this graphic snapshot of Olympic tube hotspots could prove handy — once they've finished mapping the anticipated effects of the Torch Relay and Paralympics — especially as two of their top five travel tips include advice to 'avoid'.
