Whilst closures are in place, Service 52A, 52B and 157 will continue to serve The Triangle by turning at the junction of Station Road,The Triangle and Fortfield Terrace under banks man control, before waiting time and resuming normal route.

Most of the route will be handled as a 'rolling road closure', with some services being disrupted as a result.

When the route passes through Exeter, road closures will be in place on Pennsylvania Road, between the junctions of Union Road and York Road, York Road between the junctions of Pennsylvania Road and Sidwell Street, the entire length of Sidwell Street and High Street, the entire length of South Street and the entire length of Topsham Road.

These closures will be in place 30 minutes prior to the arrival of the race. We expect the closures to commence at 12:00 noon, but this may change depending on the race's progress. Closures will be in place for approximately 45 minutes.

All services in the Exeter area will be subject to extensive disruption as a result of this closure. We advise all passengers to allow extra time for their journeys, and if travelling to watch the race, please also allow plenty of time.
