On Monday 7 July 2014 the Tour de France comes to London. Information about the Tour de France’s impact on London’s road network can be found on our website at tfl.gov.uk/tourdefrance and further updates will be issued via our Twitter account @TfLTPH.
During the Tour de France, there will be road closures and changes to the road layout to accommodate the event. As part of this, access arrangements for London City Airport for all vehicles, including taxi and private hire vehicles, will be different on Monday 7 July.
Road closures will be implemented from 10:00and different arrangements at the airport will be in place between 10:00 and 15:00 and then from15:00 until it is safe to re-open the roads. Should you wish to access London City Airport during these times then please use the following routes:
· Driving into the airport
Drive south from the A13 Newham Way along the A1020 Royal Docks Road, turn right onto Albert Way. At the roundabout at the north end of Connaught Bridge, vehicles will be guided through the road closure by marshals onto the race route. Vehicles will continue onto the southbound carriageway of the bridge and then through to the airport – the cyclists will travel the wrong way down the adjacent northbound carriageway later in the day.
· Leaving the airport
You should turn left as you leave the airport and follow the A112 Connaught Rd/Albert Rd through to Woolwich Manor Way and the Sir Steve Redgrave Bridge. This leads onto the A1020 Royal Docks Rd northbound which will take you to the A13.
From 15:00 until roads re-open
· Driving to the airport
Drive south from the A13 Newham Way along the A1020 Royal Docks Rd and continue straight on via the Sir Steve Redgrave Bridge onto Woolwich Manor Way. At the traffic lights at the junction with Fishguard Way turn right into the industrial estate. There will be marshals present to direct you onto an airport access road, which leads onto Hartmann Road and then into the airport. Please drive carefully on this access road, which is not usually open to general traffic.
· Leaving the airport
You should turn left as you leave the airport and follow the A112 Connaught Rd/Albert Rd through to Woolwich Manor Way and the Sir Steve Redgrave Bridge. These leads onto the A1020 Royal Docks Rd northbound which will take you to A13.
Although the event will cause disruption we have tried to minimise this and the arrangements in place should ensure that you can continue to access London City Airport throughout the day.
