Published: Wednesday 30th July 14
The Prudential RideLondon cycling festival takes place on August 9 and 10 and will have a major impact on Wandsworth’s transport network.
The route through Wandsworth on Sunday 10 August.
On Saturday 9 August the cycling event does not come into the borough but road closures in central London will have a knock on effect on local traffic levels.
On Sunday 10 August there will be a much greater impact as the following roads are closed from 7.30am to 7pm.
Wimbledon Park Side SW19
Tibbet’s Corner SW19
Tibbet’s Ride SW15
Putney Hill SW15
Putney High Street SW15
Putney Bridge SW15
Chelsea Bridge , Albert Bridge and Battersea Bridge will all be closed to traffic from 7.30am to 7pm. Wandsworth Bridge will also be closed during these times with access for local residents only.
Cllr Jonathan Cook, deputy council leader, said:
“This is a spectacular event but we have to recognise the impacts it will inevitably have on our transport network. The festival will involve significant disruption and we strongly advise local people to plan their travel well in advance.
“Putney will be the place to be on the Sunday as the amateur and professional riders come through the high street on their way back into central London . The town centre will be packed with cycling fans and it’s a terrific place to come and soak up the atmosphere.”
If residents have any questions about the event and its impacts on local transport they can call the Ride London Helpdesk on 0345 8949773, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.PrudentialRideLondon.co.uk.
