If you missed the traffic chaos caused by last Sunday’s London Triathlon event don’t worry – this Sunday 4th August 2019 the Prudential Ride London event will be causing the same level of disruption.
So consider last weekend just a warm-up. Sorry.
Our-so-inept-it-would-be-funny-if-it-was-not-so-tragic council has done us all proud by posting details of last year’s 2018 Prudential Ride London event just to screw with your mind. Ignore it.
Ignore this as well
Residents should also ignore the information on the same page about the AJ Bell London Triathlon because that info refers to last years event too.
LW spent some time looking at this out-of-date information in some confusion until we realised what was going on.
Which is more than we can say for the Council as there seems to be no information about this year’s Prudential Ride London event on the Council’s website.
Road closures in Wapping Sunday 4 August 2019
We have managed to find this information for you which does seem to be for this year (2019? Yes?).
We hope this helps. Nobody else seems arsed.
Two consecutive Wapping lock-ins on two consecutive weekends? Seriously?
You can find contact details for all your ward councillors here. Why not get in touch?
The Council’s website does have these little missives for all of you who are not of the two-wheeled persuasion.
“The council is committed to helping our residents to live happier, healthier lives with greater access to cultural, community and leisure activities. As such, we are always pleased to welcome sporting stars – both professional and amateur – to our streets.”
“While the response to sporting events is broadly positive, the council does recognise that the need for road closures and parking restrictions can cause some frustration, particularly in areas that are impacted more than once in an average year.
Most of the larger events take place solely on main roads controlled by Transport for London – as in the case of Ride London and the London Triathlon – and the council does not have a deciding role in the approval process or in the organisation of road closures. “
And for those of you who missed our in-depth coverage of the massed spectators at last weekend’s event enjoying greater access to cultural, community and leisure activities, this photo is for you!
