What a brilliant atmosphere in and around Marple for the Tour of Britain. Massive crowds all cheering and enjoying the spectacle of the race in gorgeous sunshine. It couldn’t have been any better.

The big day is here and the Tour of Britain will hit Marple at lunchtime today.



The Tour should pass through High Lane, Marple and Werneth Low between approximately 11.45am and 12.16pm.

For the central location of Hibbert Lane the timing is approx 11.58am to 12.08pm.

I'm also advised that when they pass if you blink you'll miss it!

Anyway, below is the full timetable as a pdf plus a couple of snapshots of the local section timings.

I expect the riders will be through Marple a good deal quicker than Marple Carnival and will thus cause less disruption and the periods during which roads are closed will be less.
Thats what i said .

Do we know where and when the road closures will be? Is there a list available?

Marple Exile has said  "However, Stockport is a traffic nightmare at the best of times, and the route takes it across some of the main roads in and out of the area, so even relatively short closures will have a big traffic impact. However I suspect the closure of a main road crossing will be relatively short and it is only one day.  I occasionally travel on the A1 - other roads will be similar - when traffic waiting to cross probably waits 10 minutes or more every day until there is a suitable break in the traffic.  For the Tour the road crossings will be police controlled and they will not want to hold up the traffic for any great time.  As our area is at an early part of the race, the competitors will not be split up to any great extent and that the closure time of a "blink of an eye" may be all that is necessary.
It will be through in 12 minutes from were you are they dont hang about .

I think that the Tour of Britain are relatively good with it being a rolling road closure, rather than the whole route being closed for most of the day.

However, Stockport is a traffic nightmare at the best of times, and the route takes it across some of the main roads in and out of the area, so even relatively short closures will have a big traffic impact.

Thanks. My sister was due to visit me that day, so I wondered how early she would have to come to avoid the closures. Probably best if I rearrange for another weekend.

This is the route, from an earlier post, so these are the roads that will be closed:

What's the exact route of the Tour of Britain through Marple?

Been trying to work out the Tour of Britain exact route through High Lane, Marple and Romiley.

Looks like A6 > Carr Brow > Wybersley Rd > The Ridge > Church Lane >  Hibbert Lane > Stockport Road > Station Road > Brabyns Brow > Lower Fold > Compstall Rd > Cowlishaw Rd > Werneth Low Rd and off to Gee Cross and Hyde. 



And these are the timings of the event (so it's likely that the roads will be closed from mid-morning until mid-afternoon) but haven't yet seen any details of road closure timings:

The Stage 8 Timetable for the Tour of Britain is now available

This shows that the Tour should pass through High Lane, Marple and Werneth Low between approximately 11.45am and 12.16pm.

For the central location of Hibbert Lane the timing is approx 11.58am to 12.08pm.

I'm also advised that when they pass if you blink you'll miss it!

Anyway, below is the full timetable as a pdf plus a couple of snapshots of the local section timings.
