Road closures 

Plan ahead and have a great Tour … that’s the message to people along the East Coast, as details are announced of which roads will be affected by the first-ever Tour de Yorkshire cycle race.  The aim is to keep disruption to a minimum and ensure all road users are kept safe.

Stage 1 of the race, on Friday 1May 2015, will see the riders departing at 12pm from Bridlington.  The race then enters North Yorkshire south of Filey before making its way across to Pickering via East Ayton, Hackness and Dalby Forest. The race heads northwards through Rosedale before heading east along the Esk Valley to Whitby. Once through Whitby the race goes through Robin Hood’s Bay then south to Scarborough, finishing on the seafront at around 4.30pm.

 

In Whitby there will be road closures around the harbour area to allow for the installation and removal of race infrastructure and to ensure crowd and rider safety. Closures will be in place Friday 1st May from 12.00pm to 5.00pm on New Quay Road, Whitby Swing Bridge, Bridge Street and Church Street.

The rest of the race route will be closed under the rolling road closures and will be closed for around an hour.  Estimated road closure times can be found at www.northyorks.gov.uk/tour

Visitors to Whitby are encouraged to use the Park and Ride service, or use the pay and display car parks at The Abbey Headland and West Cliff.  Parking restrictions will be in place across the race route and spectators are asked not to park on the race route.

There may be queuing traffic on the A171 and A169 approaches to Whitby, as a result of the rolling road closures.  Motorists are asked to use additional caution on the approaches to theses area and allow additional time for their journeys.

The council is recommending that spectators coming to watch the race arrive early and spend some time in Scarborough both before and after the race.

“This is a fantastic event which builds on last year’s Tour de France, and once again the benefits to North Yorkshire will be enormous, both in the immediate term and the longer term” said County Cllr John Weighell, Leader of North Yorkshire County Council.

“We want to make sure that everything is in place to make it a huge success and ensures the race passes off smoothly for everyone – for the competitors, for the spectators, and for all other residents and highways users.

 “We are doing all we can to make sure that it is successful – and that as far as possible, disruption for everyone who needs to use our roads over the weekend of the 1 – 3 May, is kept to a minimum”.
