2012 Olympic Games
The following areas have been designated Delivery Restricted Areas:
- Olympic Venues- London and Outside

The Olympic games start on the 16th July and finish on the 12th August and the Paralympic Games start on the 29th August and finish on the 10th September with a "transition period" between these two events.
