Where are the anniversary road closures?

In honor of Her Majesty’s 70th Jubilee, over 158 official Platinum Jubilee events and more local events are being held across the UK.

Street festivals are a common celebration, as are parades, so naturally many roads are closed.

This is particularly noticeable in London, where official advice is not to drive around the city this weekend.

Check your local government website for road closures in your area as these are subject to change during the anniversary.

Transport for London (TfL) has recommended avoiding the use of cars or buses whenever possible.

The website states: “If your destination is not in central London, use routes that avoid the area.”

Road closure Thursday, Feb

As far as The Sun can tell, there will be minimal road closures on Thursday, the Spring Bank Holiday.

Most disruption is concentrated in central London and Buckingham Palace for Trooping the Color – most Platinum Jubilee events take place over the weekend.

Again, check locally to see if there are smaller events in your area, but use the subway instead of road travel to avoid problems.

Is the London Underground open during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee weekend?
