Next month, stage three of the Tour de Yorkshire will pass through Huddersfield and Calderdale as part of the Wakefield-Leeds leg.

On Sunday May 3, police will use rolling roadblocks ahead of the cyclists to protect them and will close off junctions as necessary as the race passes through.

This means, in contrast to the programme of lengthy road closures for last year's Tour de France, roads will only close just before cyclists arrive, and will reopen after they have passed.

Only one road in Huddersfield will be closed for the full day — a section of the route from Slaithwaite to Scapegoat Hill.

Clough Road, from its junction with Crimble Bank to its Junction with Bolster Moor Road, will be completely closed from 10am-4pm.

Residents who need to access their cars during this time need to move them before 10am on the day.
