Road Closure Notice - Thursday 18 May 2017
Croydon Council are staging a Free Event – Croydon Cycle Fest – Thursday 18 May 2017 and have given advance notice of Road Closures and Bus Diversions.
There will be a series of events in the town centre on Thursday 18th May 2017, including races, skills demonstrations before the main event, a professional cycle race at 2pm
The majority of roads that form the event route will close to traffic from 9.30am on Thursday 18 May with some roads closing as early as 7am to allow for set-up. Although the races will not start on the full course until 2pm, the road closures need to come into effect earlier so that barriers and event infrastructure can be installed. As a result, the event will have an impact on road transport, including bus journeys in the vicinity. Roads will open as soon as possible after the event.
Other key points to note are:
- Vehicles will not be able to cross the route while the road closures are in place.
- Some roads surrounding the road enclosures will also be affected and parking restrictions will continue to apply in some areas – please check local signs to see where and when suspensions will apply.
