The hydrogen-powered buses that usually ply the South Bank and Bankside on route RV1 will be conspicuous by their absence during the Olympics and Paralympics.
Postal affairs minister Norman Lamb said he was "very concerned" to hear complaints from representatives of SE1 and SE16 residents and businesses about the service provided by Royal Mail's Mandela Way delivery office.
Westminster Bridge was closed to traffic on Friday night while new road markings were painted to indicate the 'games lanes' which come into force on Wednesday.
