Advice for spectators before Olympic torch arrives in BracknellBy Becky Barnes
June 25, 2012
Spectators, drivers, residents and businesses have been given advice about Bracknell’s ‘Moment To Shine’.
With just under four weeks until the Olympic Torch arrives, Bracknell Forest Council has launched a webpage to give tips, travel and transport information plus a map.
Spectators are advised to arrive early and use public transport if possible as a number of traffic restrictions will be in force.
The torch is scheduled to arrive at around 5.30pm on Tuesday, July 10, and will make its way along London Road, Millennium Way and Skimped Hill Lane.
These roads will be temporarily closed and all access on to them will be forbidden.
Anyone who parks along the route has been warned they are at risk of being towed away.
The council has also warned drivers and commuters to be aware of delays, between 5.15pm and 6.15pm.
Health and safety advice is available to those wishing to stand along the torch route.
A Bracknell Forest spokeswoman said: “For most people this will be a once in a lifetime event and in order to deliver this opportunity there will be some disruption to the normal day.
“Please be patient and please be careful. This is Bracknell’s ‘Moment to Shine’.”
