Tour de France 2014 at Elland Cricket Club - Road Closures

Road Closures

Taken from

If you park on the route in the three weekends leading up to the Tour, you may receive a flyer on your windscreen explaining that a “Clearway Order” comes into force from 00:01 on Friday July 4th for rural areas and 00:01hrs on Sunday 6th July for urban. The clearway order comes into effect at 00:01 on Friday 4th July to allow the Council to issue warning notices to vehicles such as camper vans, street vendors, etc. already parked on the route, showing the intent to tow vehicles away from 00:01 on race day.

The riders and their support vehicles need plenty of space, so there will be no parking on the race route. PLEASE DO NOT PARK ON THE RACE ROUTE AND WITHIN THE FIRST TEN METRES OF ANY ADJOINING ROAD FROM 00:01 / ONE MINUTE PAST MIDNIGHT ON SUNDAY JULY 6TH, AS ANY VEHICLES PARKED ON THE ROUTE OR ADJOINING ROADS (LISTED BELOW) WILL BE TOWED AWAY. YOU CAN STILL DRIVE ALONG THESE ROADS AFTER 00:01 UNTIL 06:30, BUT DO NOT PARK ON THEM DURING THESE HOURS. Letters have now been sent to people who live on the route giving more information and alternate parking options.


The race route and adjoining roads will be closed in Calderdale from 06.30 on Sunday July 6th to allow traffic to drain from the route for a period of half an hour. From 07:00 all the barriers and signage will be positioned on the route, the roads swept and checked in anticipation of the arrival of the event. At 10:30, the route will be handed over to the race organisers, Amaury Sports Organisation (ASO) who will then do their own checks of the route and prepare for the arrival of the race.


Any roads linked to the route will also be closed where the road meets the race route and access roads to the route may also be closed. A current list of road closures is available below and you can view an interactive map of the closures here.

The roads will still be open to pedestrians and cyclists after the closures come into effect at 6.30am, so that spectators can get into position to watch the race, until such time as the ASO checking vehicle arrives from approximately 10:30 onwards.


Calderdale Council are working in partnership with the race organisers, emergency services, emergency planning, housing associations and health care providers to ensure that all essential services can carry on during the event.


The Council and its partners are making every effort to ensure the race is a huge success and also to minimise wherever possible the impact on local people and businesses in Calderdale.


The Tour de France is a huge, fun event - so enjoy yourself and release your inner cyclist! Keep up to date via social media @InnerCyclist for all things cycling in Calderdale or @letouryorkshire for general information.
