Tour of Britain 2023: All the road closures along the East Riding routeTue 22nd August 2023
There’s just two weeks to go until the Tour of Britain returns to the East Riding.
Stage three of the race, The Howdens Stage: Goole to Beverley, will start from Goole’s central’s precinct at about 11.30am on Tuesday September 5, before racing through the East Riding’s towns and countryside and finishing opposite Beverley Racecourse at about 3.30pm.
To allow people to plan ahead, East Riding of Yorkshire Council has now revealed all the road closures that will be in place before, during and after the race.
To keep disruption to a minimum, most road closures will be on rolling basis, only staying in place for as long as they need to as the peloton makes its way along the route.
Signs will be erected along the route to advise road users that some delays should be expected, with approximate times.
There will be fixed closures at the start in Goole and the finish in Beverley, with some in place from the evening of Monday, 4 September, so the start events can be set up.
Goole’s Estcourt Street Car Park will become the buzzing hub for the cycle teams, which means the car park, as well as Estcourt Street and Stanley Street, will close to vehicles from the Monday evening until the Tuesday evening.
To make up for the loss of parking, the one-hour parking limit will be lifted on Carlisle Steet.
Councillor Anne Handley, leader of the council, said: “We are all so excited to be hosting an entire stage of the Tour of Britain here in the East Riding.
“To make this huge event happen, and to keep riders safe, there will be some road closures in place.
“We know this may cause some disruption, which is why we are letting everyone know early so they can plan.
“This is a huge event for the East Riding, and we want everyone across the county to embrace it and join us in making it an unforgettable one.”
