Residents and visitors to Putney are being reminded that the Prudential Ride London is taking place during the first weekend of August (3rd-4th).
Thousands of cyclists are expected to take part and will have a major effect on travel throughout south west London and in Putney town centre in particular.
To accommodate the riders, the following roads will be closed to all vehicle traffic from 7.30am on the day. They are expected to reopen at around 7.30pm, although this timing is subject to change.
- Wimbledon Parkside SW19
- Tibbet’s Corner SW19
- Tibbet’s Ride SW15
- Putney Hill SW15
- Putney High Street SW15
Putney Bridge would normally be closed to traffic in both directions but will remain open to reduce pressure on local roads caused by the current indefinite closure of Hammersmith Bridge. As a result, localised vehicle traffic will be able to cross the bridge between the lower Richmond Road and Fulham High Street.
There will also be restrictions at Wandsworth Bridge which will be closed to all but local residents who need access.
