The Tour de Yorkshire 2-5 May 2019 – In our area on Thursday 2nd & Saturday 4th May 2019

Prepare for any likely travel disruption.

The race is in our area on Thursday 2nd May as the men’s race goes from Doncaster to Selby and on Saturday 4 May as both the men’s and women’s races start in Bridlington and ends in Scarborough.

The key areas for disruption on Thursday 2 May is that the Market Place in Pocklington will be closed between 1pm and 6pm.

Other than that there are parking restrictions on the whole route and a rolling road block which is likely to cause an estimated 40 minute delay as the race passes through.

On Saturday 4th May the focus moves to Bridlington where both the man’s and women’s races will start outside The Spa. South Marine Drive and part of Kingston Road will be closed to vehicles from 6pm on Friday 3 May until 6pm on Saturday 4 May.

The race will be managed using rolling road closures rather than long-term closures.

There will be rolling road closures along the route on Thursday 2 May and they are expected to last no longer then 40 minutes.

Roadside parking along the route will be suspended for the day for safety reasons and signs informing residents of this are already on display.

Market Place in Pocklington will be the focus of a number of events to celebrate the Tour de Yorkshire and so will be closed between 1pm and 6pm. Also St Helen’s Square in Barmby Moor will be closed between 2pm and 10pm for their celebrations to take place.

On Saturday 4 May the focus moves to Bridlington where both the man’s and women’s races will start outside The Spa.

South Marine Drive and part of Kingston Road will be closed to vehicles from 6pm on Friday 3 May until 6pm on Saturday 4 May and on-street parking will also be suspended.
