LOCOG (London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games) has chosen Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland to stage a dress rehearsal of the Olympic Torch Relay on Friday 20th April.
Rolling road closures will be used to manage the event which means that a number of roads in Leicester (including Abbey Lane and Red Hill Circle) will be closed from approximately 7.30am to 8.15am.
During this time, the Park & Ride Service 203 (Birstall – Leicester city centre – Enderby) will operate a diversion which means that stops on Belgrave Gate at Leicester College will not be served in either direction while the roads are closed and the traffic clears (between approximately 7am and 8am).
Passengers are advised to allow plenty of time for their journeys and be aware that there may be delays.
This will affect passengers travelling to and from both Birstall and Enderby.
Leicester City Council and Leicestershire County Council apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Service 103 from Meynell’s Gorse to Leicester city centre will run its normal route.
