Olympic Torch Relay Route Unveiled

The London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games has confirmed all the communities in the South West through which the Olympic Flame will be carried by Torchbearers during the London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay.

The Olympic Flame will visit every county in the South West and the route achieves the optimum mix of proximity to people whilst taking in beautiful natural and urban landmarks to showcase the South West region around the world.

The announcement of the 1,018 villages, towns and cities on the UK route means LOCOG has realised the aspiration of taking the Olympic Flame to within an hour’s journey time of 95% of the population. In fact, over 95% of the population will be within just 10 miles of the Olympic Flame next summer. The street by street detail of the route will be confirmed next year.

For logistical reasons, not all the landmarks and modes of transport will be accessible to large crowds but LOCOG will continue to work with the Local Authorities and operators to ensure public access information is given in advance.

With the Olympic Flame shining a light on these different communities the Olympic Torch Relay is an opportunity for the people of the South West region to connect with the Olympic Games, its values and its spirit. Many thousands of people are expected to welcome the Olympic Flame along the route each day and celebrate the achievements of the Torchbearers along the route each day.

People are invited to view the interactive map at www.london2012.com/olympictorchrelaymap   to find their nearest community through which the Olympic Flame will be carried. 

Sebastian Coe, Chair of LOCOG, said: ‘I’m delighted that the Olympic Torch Relay will take the 2012 Games to almost every corner of the South West and that we have achieved our ambition to take the Flame to within an hour’s journey of 95% of the population. Now everyone is invited to plan their welcome and find out where they can go to be part of this historic occasion. The Olympic Games are coming to you as the Olympic Flame gives people across the South West their moment to shine.’
