Essential Tour of Britain road closure details confirmed
It’s now only ten days until some of the biggest names in cycling ride the 215km Tour of Britain route through Nottinghamshire
Rolling road closures of the race route – including any side roads - will start 15- 20 minutes ahead of the lead rider and remain in place until all riders and race cars have passed through. This will be managed by police escort vehicles.
The exact length of these rolling road closures depends upon how dispersed the riders are.
In order to create the required width for the race, no waiting restrictions will be in operation from 8am-4pm throughout the race route. This restrictions will be lifted as soon as possible after all the riders have passed through and all operational activities have been completed.
There will also be specific race day closures at the start and finish venues as follows
Race start in West Bridgford:
- All of Central Avenue will be closed from 4am to 3pm
- Bridgford Road ( between Stratford road to rectory road) will be closed from 4am to 3pm
- No waiting restrictions for the whole length of Rectory Road from 4am to 3pm
Race finish in Mansfield:
- A6191 Chesterfield Road South (From Abbott Road to Rosemary Street) road closed from 5am to 5pm
- A6191 Chesterfield Road South (From Rosemary Street to Crow Hill Drive) road closed from 2pm to 5pm
- A6009 Rosemary Street (Chesterfield Road South to Civic Centre Access Road) road closed from 2pm to 5pm
To avoid these rolling closures, the advice from the national organisers is to look at the route of the race and avoid that road for about one hour either side of the predicted time of the race passing through
