Information for local residents

Road closures will be put in place in and around Rochester Town Centre between Friday 19 and Sunday 21 July 2019. This is to ensure that spectators and competitors are safe during the National Circuit Championships and the Medway Mile.

Residents cannot park or move their vehicles on certain roads at particular times. 

We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause throughout the weekend.

Due to the impact of preparations for the cycling event, we have arranged for alternative parking for residents living on or inside the race route.

Letters have been sent to affected residents with information about how to apply for a permit.
