Cycling Time Trials Road Closures
Dudley Borough will be welcoming the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games men’s and women’s cycling time trials on Thursday 4 August. A map of the circular course is available at: www.dudley.gov.uk/commonwealthgames
In preparation for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games this summer, the Get Set for the Games partnership is working together to support residents in planning ahead.
This support will help minimise the impact of the Games on everyday users of the transport network to ensure residents can still get about, and borough operations can continue to meet local needs.
Many roads in the north and the centre of the borough will be closed inside and around the time trial route between the hours of 5am and 6pm (roads will re-open at 6pm) on the day of the time trials. A full list of road closures, roads with changed traffic conditions, and crossing points is available on our www.dudley.gov.uk/cgtraffic/
