Roads across Tower Hamlets will be closed on Sunday morning, August 4 for one of the world’s greatest cycling festivals.

The Ride London-Surrey Classic will see some of the best cyclists in the world come through the borough.

Road closures will be in place along the route from 4am until 11.15am and will affect the A12 Southbound between Redbridge and East India Dock Road, East India Dock Road, A13 Aspen Way, Limehouse Link, The Highway, East Smithfield, Minories and Tower Hill.

Three-time 2019 Tour de France stage winner Caleb Ewan will start Sunday's race.

A spokesman for Tower Hamlets Council said: "The participants will make their way along the A12, turning left along East India Dock Road before joining Aspen Way to head through the Limehouse Link Tunnel.
