The Olympic Route Network is bound to affect Garratt Lane, Wandsworth High Street and Putney Bridge Road areas, bus services 28/220/270 and 44 that cross the "network", but they are not listed in the schedules. If we have Wimbledon then the tennis Olympics and the cycle race people need to be able to plan for this. Garratt Lane is already a nightmare some days. It was gridlocked for part of Monday with no obvious reason apart from the endless roadworks by Southside. With works at Earlsfield Station already delayed this is going to be very difficult and needs lots of clarification. Why are our bus routes not mentioned by TFL?Celia Blair, Earlsfield
