Devon Stage - Tour of Britain

There will be fixed road closures in place in the start and finish locations of the Devon Stage of The Tour of Britain on Thursday 15 September, and rolling road closures along the route of the race enforced by police and civilian motorcycles.

The rolling road closures will only be in effect for a limited period to allow the race and race vehicles to travel through towns and villages safely and to allow residents, businesses and visitors ample opportunity to see the event safely.

Closed roads will not open until the final vehicle in the convoy, known as the broom wagon, has passed.
