Cycling - Road Races
There are road races on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th July and Time Trials on the 31st July and 1st August. The races do not pass by the hospital but there will be extensive road closures between Central London and Dorking so please ensure you check the routes carefully and have made alternative arrangements to travel to the hospital if necessary on those days. For more information please go to http://www.gosurrey.info/ or www.getaheadofthegames.com
Extensive road closures and parking restrictions along the route will be in place from the early hours of the morning on event days (exact times below). To meet the requirements of the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games (LOCOG), the following road closures will take place:
Road Race - Saturday 28 July
• the section of the route from Ember Court roundabout near Hampton Court anti-clockwise round to Givons Grove roundabout just after the Box Hill loop will close from 4am
• the section after Givons Grove roundabout through Leatherhead and Esher back up to Ember Court roundabout will close from 6am.
• the exit slip roads from both carriageways of the A3 to the A244 at Esher Common junction will be closed from 6am.
• the Zig Zag Road and Box Hill Road within the National Trust property on Box Hill will be closed from 10am on 25 to 30 July.
Road Race - Sunday 29 July
• all sections of the Road Race route will close from 6am.
Time Trial rehearsal - Tuesday 31 July
• a rehearsal for the Time Trial will involve rolling road closures between 10am - 12pm.
Time Trial - Wednesday 1 August
• initial closures will be in place for the Time Trial in Elmbridge from 5.30am, but some local access will be allowed until 8.45am to help people get to work.
• Hampton Court Road (north of the roundabout to the entrance of Bushy Park) will be closed from 10pm on 31 July to 5.30am on the 2 August to allow venue build and dismantling of the finish area to take place.
• the southbound A3 exit slip at Painshill will be closed from 8.30am on Wednesday 1 August. Drivers travelling northbound who exit the A3 at Painshill will be only be able to turn left to Byfleet and Woking; it will not be possible to access Cobham until the race is finished and adjacent roads are re-opened.
After the events pass through Surrey, roads will remain closed for some time to ensure they are safe, secure and ready for public use. The roads must be handed back to Surrey County Council control by LOCOG’s event safety team, which will only happen once they are happy that reopening the roads will not potentially cause harm to spectators.
It is hoped that roads will reopen three hours after the last support vehicle has gone through. The exceptions to this are Dorking Town Centre, Hampton Court, Leatherhead Town Centre and Box Hill due to other events taking place in those area; we expect these to reopen in early evening.
It will take a minimum of three hours work to remove barriers street furniture and reinstate the roads to make them safe for traffic to use. This work can't begin until the final vehicle passes and so please be patient while it is taking place. It could be delayed by large crowds dispersing slowly, the weather, security needs or potential delays to the events, and they cannot begin work or open roads until it is safe to do so.
After the race has passed, all of this work must be completed before the roads can be re-opened:
All of this work will be completed as quickly as possible.
Location of road closures
Any road that has a junction that meets the race route will close at that junction. No cars can be parked on the route on event days.
