Tour de France 2014

June 30th, 2014 by Peter

The Tour de France, the world’s largest annual sporting event, is coming to London and the South East on Monday 7 July 2014.


Stage 3 of the route starts in Cambridge city centre, running alongside the M11 then veering off towards the outskirts of Braintree and Chelmsford, before heading back west and riding through Epping and into Greater London. The world’s greatest cyclists will ride through Woodford Green, Chingford, Walthamstow and Snaresbrook before approaching central London via Leyton, Stratford, West Ham, Plaistow, Silvertown, Leamouth, Poplar, Wapping and Shadwell.


Once past the Tower of London, the final kilometres of the route will take them along the Thames, towards Lower and Upper Thames Streets and Victoria Embankment, before riding past the Houses of Parliament, around St James’s Park and finishing, with Buckingham Palace as a backdrop, on The Mall in St James’s Park on Monday afternoon.


As you can imagine, with numerous road closures from 4am on Monday and large crowds of people gathering to watch the event, our usual operating, delivery and technical services will inevitably be affected.  Fully managed customers in and around the TdF route may be visited either the (working) day before or after to completely avoid road closures and traffic congestion.


Similarly, while we will endeavour to provide our usual high service level, customers in parts of the following postcodes will be hard or even impossible to reach until Tuesday 8th July. Please rest assured we will prioritise any work we have been unable to carry out so that customers in the affected areas are visited as soon as it is possible to do so.


Affected postcodes
Cambridgeshire: CB1, CB2, CB10
Essex: CM1, CM3, CM5, CM7, CM16, IG7-10
London: E1, E6, E9, E10, E11, E13, E14, E15, E16, E17, E18, E20, EC1-4, SE1, SE16, SW1, W1, WC2
