Road closures as Birmingham 2022 Queen’s Baton Relay comes to Solihull

Solihull Editorial 25th Jul, 2022   0

ROADS will be closed across Solihull tomorrow (July 26) as The Birmingham 2022 Queen’s Baton Relay makes its way through the borough.

Solihull Council say these will be short term staggered closures which are intended to minimise the impact of the event, whilst enabling as many people as possible to safely see and take part in this celebration which marks the culmination of the build-up to the Games.

The Baton will be supported by a convoy of vehicles which will follow and transport it between relay locations.

Roads will be closed to vehicles approximately 20 minutes in advance of the anticipated baton arrival to each relay point.

Roads will then reopen as soon as the baton has safely passed by.

The Council say it is anticipated the disruption at any one location will be limited to approximately one hour, and in most cases will be significantly less than this.

All roads, apart from Homer Road, will remain open to pedestrians and therefore whilst access by vehicles will be temporarily limited, access on foot will always be available.

Access for emergency services will also be maintained at all times.

Bus services will also be impacted and people are encouraged to check with the operator to understand how this may affect their journey.

Car parks across the town centre will experience some restrictions from 5pm onwards and users are advised to check notices when entering car parks.

The Council House car park will not be accessible to the public until after 7pm.
