Tour of Britain Road Closures and Waiting Restrictions

Tuesday 5th September 2017 – Local events

Wednesday 6th September 2017 – Main race

Main race

Start: Mansfield Town Centre Time: 11:00

Finish: Newark Town Centre Time: 15:20 (Approx)

The race is held on a closed road basis with ‘rolling road closures’ implemented by the police and national escort group motorcyclists. Moving traffic is to be directed to stop by this group and held at strategic points to create a sterile traffic-free section through which the race will pass.

The start and finish areas will require fixed traffic management systems as will localised events or special locations along the route. Local events taking place outside the hours of the main race are indicated in the attached file.

In order to create the required width for the race, parking needs to be displaced at some locations.
