This Order brings sections 13 to 16 of the London Olympic Games and Paralympic Games Act 2006 into force on 5th October 2009.

Section 13 directs that a local highway authority, local traffic authority or street authority must notify the Olympic Delivery Authority before exercising any function that may have an impact upon the Olympic Travel Plan, Olympic Route Network, a London Olympic Event or any other travel related to the London Olympics.

Section 14 provides that the Olympic Delivery Authority may, with the consent of the Secretary of State, make an order relating to roads forming part of the Olympic Route Network as if it were a traffic authority in respect of that road, in so far as it does so in order to implement the Olympic Transport Plan or facilitate transport services in connection with the London Olympics.

Section 15 sets the maximum fine for contravention of an order made under section 14 at level 5 on the standard scale, and deals with other matters relating to enforcement, including provisions from Part 6 of the Traffic Management Act 2004(3).

Section 16 applies section 16A of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 (road closures or restrictions for certain events)(4) to the London Olympics.
