How the road closures will work and when roads will be shut

A Tour de Yorkshire spokesman said:

"For each stage the closures will be managed by the police as a ‘rolling closure’.

"This means that the traffic will be stopped at any given point between 10 and 30 minutes ahead of the first cyclist.

"When the race, and all the official and team vehicles, have passed the roads will reopen again. The last vehicle in the race group is a lorry with screens on both sides telling people watching that the roads are open again.

"Typically the closure is in place for between 20 and 50 minutes depending on the severity of the stage, how far into the stage the race is and the weather."

Access will be maintained to/from residences except during the race closure periods, under steward control.

Across West Yorkshire, the Tour Caravan will hit Otley at about 3.30pm on Sunday, May 5, which means roads will be closed on a rolling road basis about half an hour before, at 3pm. The road affected is the B6451

The race will finish on the A65, A647 and the A58 between 4.51pm and 5.31pm, so road closures will affect those roads from 4.21pm to 6pm.
