Road closures and waiting restrictions for the Tour de France weekend have now been finalised.

And it means thousands of drivers will have to move their cars some 40 hours ahead of the big race.

Kirklees Council will bring in waiting restrictions from 7pm on Friday July 4 - ahead of the Sunday event.

Road closures will come into force on the day itself with the route and nearby roads closed to traffic at 7.30am - but Kirklees is bringing forward waiting restrictions on and near the race route.

And Holme Moss - where some 60,000 spectators are expected to watch the race - will be closed to all traffic other than emergency vehicles and residential permit holders from Friday July 4.

Council leader Clr David Sheard said: “We now have the whole list of roads which will have to be closed for the event, and while some are obvious because they form part of the route, other roads are needed for other reasons, whether that is for associated events, or for residents’ parked cars displaced from the route itself.

 

“But we are doing all we can to help people prepare. Our message is very much ‘get ready, plan ahead and enjoy it’ and the key to that is to get the information spread far and wide so I urge everyone to visit our resident roadshows, and look at the Tour de France pages on the council website http://www.kirklees.gov.uk/letour to keep updated.”

Kirklees is warning of severe congestion and is advising spectators to set off early if travelling in a car on race day.

Queries about road closures can be made to the dedicated helpline on 01484 414881, or emailed to customer.enquiries@kirklees.gov.uk
