Coast Path, Drop in Information Session

The Coast Path route is nearing implementation. I am generally in favour of the route through Blyth, but I know some people have worries about the actual route through the area.

There is to be a drop in session to give information at the Dave Stephens Centre, on Wednesday 2nd December , from 10 am to 1 pm . Details are on the attached poster

( Apologies for the standard of the picture, I have had to convert it to a format that this blog program accepts )

Tour of Britain, Stage 4 finishing at Blyth

Final details of the Stage 4 of the tour of Britain next week ( Wednesday 9th September ) are available

The route enters Blyth along the road from Seaton Sluice, goes along Rotary Way, Broadway and Renwick Road and then down Waterloo Rd with the finish at the Market Place

Because of this, there will be road closures along the route. Along the route the roads will be closed from 1 pm until 4 pm ( with a little "wriggle room" possible if the race timing is very fast, or very slow )

There will also be parking restrictions along the route

Waterloo Road will be closed all day

The Keel Row car park will be closed all day 

I understand that this might inconvenience a few people on the day, but this is a great opportunity for Blyth, and gives the town better publicity than we used to get some years ago. 

It is only one day,so  live with the minor inconvenience and enjoy the spectacle and excitement of this national event.
