Cycle Races – December Update

The Parish Council has responded to the Draft Surrey Transport Plan Cycling Strategy 2014 – 2026 – it is understood that the results of this consultation will be published in December. The only additional information we have at the time of writing is that instead of the road closures inflicted for the Prudential RideLondon 2013, for the 2014 race there will be rolling road closures where the roads are opened at intervals to let the traffic through so avoiding some of the anguish of residents who have been unable to leave their homes for up to twelve hours over the race duration. It is hoped that SCC will also attempt to address all the problems arising from the ever increasing number of unregulated cycle races, ‘sportives’, which seem to be on going over weekends and weekdays.
