Event Road Closures

As an event we try and keep disruption to traffic to a minimum as we understand this can cause frustration to some drivers. We will put out large advanced warning signs on the affected roads 2 weeks before the event and on the main roads into Eastbourne. If you are coming into Eastbourne from the A259 please continue along this road entering Eastbourne this way. Whilst the road closure is in place there will be no access to Eastbourne from Warren Hill (B2103) which sign posts to Eastbourne Seafront.

There will also be delays around the Meads are during the times stated below. Our marshals will endeavour to accommodate helping traffic cross Meads street around gaps in the competitors but this cannot be guaranteed. Please be patient with the marshals as they are there as volunteers to assist the organisers with the safe delivery of the event. The following roads will be closed on the date of the event.
  1. Royal parade between Sovereign Centre and Channel View road - between approx 09:30hrs and 13:00hrs
  2. Eastbourne Seafront Royal Parade to the Junction with Chesterfield Road - between approx 09:30hrs and 10:30hrs
  3. Eastbourne Seafront Chesterfield Road onwards 10:00hrs to 11:15hrs Chesterfield Road, Darley Road, Beachy Head Road (Up to the hair pin where it double backs onto Upper Dukes Drive), Upper Dukes Drive - between approx. 10:15hrs and 11:15hrs
We endeavour to keep our road closures to a minimum and will lift them as soon as the last competitors go through each section. If you do need to travel please assist us by planning ahead by either parking your vehicle outside of a road closure or taking a different route in.
