Road closures as the Tour of Britain comes to Westminster

Mon, 08/09/2014

On Sunday 14 September 2014 some of greatest names in cycling will come to Westminster for the final stage of the UKs biggest professional cycle race.

The final stage of the Tour of Britain will see riders go head-to-head against the clock during an 8.8km individual time trial in Westminster and the City of London. Riders will start and finish at Whitehall, setting off on a route that will take them past world famous Westminster sights including the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben 

The exciting event will mean that a number of roads in Westminster will be closed and you will need to plan your journey in advance.

Tube and rail will be the best way to get around on the day, although stations in the area will be busier than usual. Buses in and around the event area will be on diversion or will terminate earlier than usual.

Homes and businesses which will be directly affected, within 50m of the route, were written to in August to inform them of the impact of the route. 

Watch the race

Cycling enthusiasts and spectators can get caught up in the excitement and watch the race along the route. You can see the Transport for London race route map here [link no longer active].
