Rolling Road Closures

Roads will be disrupted under rolling road closures and escorted by Police and support vehicle convoys. Motorists must stay behind a group of cyclists racing and not overtake until there is an additional lane to do so. Cars approaching the convoy will be stopped on the side of the road by the Police. Local traffic is urged to travel only clockwise in the direction of the race to avoid delays and head on situations.

Residents encountering the convoy simply need to wait on the road side for the convoy to move past quickly and follow Police instructions.  A four to six-minute wait is all that the motorists will likely have to endure. 

If you somehow become entangled in a race, here are four simple guidelines to follow:

  • Switch on vehicle hazard lights and start to slow,
  • Move to the left-hand side of the road slowly (after checking there are no bikes to your left),
  • Wind down the windows and if need be signal with your arm your intention to move to the left hand side of the road (as cyclists cannot always see your lights),
  • Stop your vehicle off the road if safe while race passes.
