The majority of roads within the control of the London Legacy Development Corporation are primary and secondary routes that re-provide routes that existed pre-Games, and provide connectivity between surrounding neighbourhoods and to the venues and attractions within Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. 

Initiatives such as the reduction in the width of Waterden Road and the introduction of a 20mph speed limit should contribute towards a reduction in potential rat-running. As detailed proposals are brought forward for residential and other development within the Park and surrounding area the Legacy Corporation will be reviewing proposed local road networks to ensure that these principally serve residents, and will carefully consider the role that signage, carriageway layout, road markings, and the treatment of the public realm can play in protecting the neighbourhood environment.
