Amazingly, as many of us watched the closing ceremony, the Olympic Lane was being burnt off the A40 from Park Royal to Marylebone. The job was completed by 06:00. Now that is efficient!!

Indeed, that amazed me, though driving home in the morning, they still lit up the signs saying all traffic could use the Olympic lane :lol:

I had a chuckle at 02:30 this morning as I saw engineers using a huge and very noisy crane up against the Lanesborough Hotel at Hyde Park Corner dismantling a temporary Olympic footbridge. The work involved big guys with even bigger hammers knocking seven bells out of this steel structure. The guests in the Hotel must have been well happy!! (room rate £315 to £2,900 a night!!!!) :-)
