Residents and spectators are being informed of forthcoming road closures in Denbigh, to facilitate the start of Stage 4 of the Tour of Britain, taking place in North Wales on September 7th.
Starting in Denbigh Town Centre, the race will loop out of Denbigh via Lon Llewelyn, Ystrad Road and Rhyl Road before heading towards Bodfari and leave Denbighshire into Flintshire. It will head into Mold and through Pontblyddyn, Coed Talon, Treuddyn before it re-enters Denbighshire near Llandegla.
The race will then travel along the A5104 through Bryneglwys and on to the A5 at Corwen before turning for Cynwyd and Llandrillo.
In Denbigh, Vale Street, High Street, Peake’s Lane and Bridge Street will be closed to traffic from 11pm on Tuesday, 6 September. Signage is in place to inform people of the temporary closures.
Residents living on Vale Street, High Street, Hall Square, Crown Square and Bridge Street have been requested to remove their vehicle to an alternative location before 11pm on Tuesday, 6 September, to ensure the safety of the event. All residents should have received letters through the post, informing them of the request.
A rolling road closure would be in place along the following stretches of road on the day of the actual race, meaning they would close shortly before the race and re-open immediately after the race has passed: Smithfield Road, Lon Llywelyn, Ystrad Road, Ruthin Road, Rhyl Road and the A543 towards Mold.
To facilitate parking, the Council is to open a field behind the town’s Football Club and asks motorists to use this field and walk to their chosen vantage point.
In the second section of the Denbighshire stage (from Llandegla to Conrwen, Cynwyd and Llandrillo), a rolling road closure will also be in place.
