just one question as the M4 has a weight limit why can Olympic buses use it???
The M4 weight restriction notices have been adapted to say No vehicles over 7.5t EXCEPT Olympics vehicles. I can only presume that as the whole Olympics is full of hot air, they somehow weigh less than otherwise.
Noticed this evening coming in M4-A4 that the traffic was very light at all stages, it really has eased up. An Olympic shuttle coach kept pace all the way from Heathrow to Kensington. Although only the M4 lane J3-J2 is in use, and despite the VMS elsewhere saying the offside lanes were available to all, it solemnly pushed across in front of everyone else to the offside lane so marked at each start point, and then back to the middle at their end, in a very determined manner.
Journalists still taking photographs of the M4 Zil lane from the overbridges.
Huge number of both coaches and double deckers running empty back west again by evening. The various contractors have had to remove any obvious badging, but their basic livery remains, so it's quite apparent for example which are the Stagecoach ones. One of these was indicating on the front electronic sign "Stagecoach welcomes you to Hull", which must have been a puzzlement to the Korean team or whoever, who maybe thought this was some ancient British greeting
