Residents and visitors to Putney are being reminded that Prudential Ride London is taking place during the first weekend of August (3rd-4th).
Thousands of cyclists are expected to take part and this will have a major effect on travel throughout South West London and, in particular, across Putney town centre.
To accommodate the riders, the following roads will be closed to all vehicle traffic from 7.30am on the day. Roads 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 already caused by the current closure of Hammersmith Bridge. As a result, localised vehicle traffic will be able to cross the bridge between Lower Richmond Road and Fulham High Street.
There will also be restrictions on Wandsworth Bridge which will be closed to all but local residents who need access.
