The purpose of this project was to assist the London Borough of Hounslow Contingency Planning Unit in identifying and evaluating the impacts of the 2012 Olympic Games. We gathered and derived data to present a quantitative representation of the borough with possible impacts. Analysis shows significant impacts, as Hounslow could see a 15% increase in population, a 37% increase in rail ridership, a 5% increase in emergency room visits, and an additional 2000 cars per day traveling through the borough.
