TRAFFIC chaos is being predicted as details of security for the 2014 Games begin to emerge.

Bosses of the sporting event warn the security measures will result in "significant" disruption to traffic across large parts of Glasgow.

On Tuesday, city councillors will be asked to agree plans for the Athletes Village, the Emirates Arena, Tollcross Leisure Centre and Hampden Park.

They are the first of 14 applications which will be considered by the council's planning committee.

The Games will run over 11 days from July 24 until August 3, with the Athletes Village opening on July 8 when the first competitors will arrive. From July 13 until it closes on August 6, the state-of-the art housing development will operate round the clock.

City planning boss Richard Brown said: "Despite the Village being operational for just over 28 days, the lead-in time will be a number of months."

The Village will host around 6500 athletes and team officials, and a 3600 strong workforce, and will be the central hub for operations, logistics and transport.

Security will be tight round all the venues with the Athletes Village protected by high visibility police patrols and private security.

Security fencing, which will be nearly 10ft high in places, will surround the site. It will be made of anti-climb mesh on crash barriers and lit up at night.

Mr Brown said: "The operational phase will increase noise levels esp-ecially at night, both from temporary infrastructure such as generators and air conditioning units and from the day-to-day activities associated with the Village.

"In view of the close proximity of residential properties, the proposal incorporates measures to ensure there are no signif-icant impacts on the amen-ity of residents. Some areas will require additional temporary lighting but planning conditions will be imposed to safeguard the amenity of surrounding areas."

MR Brown said it will be necessary to control the road network round the venue.

He added: "This includes road restrictions, access controls and diversions which will bring about significant disruption."

Once the Games are over, the area will be returned to its original condition which could take up to four months.

Tollcross, the Emirates Arena and Hampden will also be surrounded by high security fencing with CCTV and temporary lighting.

The Emirates, which will operate as a Games venue from July 13, will host the track cycling and badminton events and will be open between 9am and 10.30pm.

Access will be restricted to authorised vehicles and residents on several roads in the area and new parking restrictions will be put in place.

Mr Brown said: "The proposal has significant impacts on the local road network. To minimise the operational effects on residents and businesses and to ensure the smooth running of the Games, a venue transport operations plan will be prepared.

"This outlines in detail all transport arriving and departing the venue, parking strategies, accessible transport and any internal transport systems required."

Mr Brown said work at Tollcross will be driven by the need to meet security and safety needs with "accept-able" impacts on the area.

Hampden will host the track and field events, as well as the closing ceremony and will have the same level of security as the other venues.

Councillors will be told there have been no objections to work planned for the four venues and will be asked to grant planning permission.
