July 22, 2009 6:00 PM

Greg has welcomed the news that the Tour of Britain Cycle Race will pass through Newcastle East on Sunday September 13th but has warned that there may be some brief traffic disruption as a result of temporary road closures.

The race will travel along the Coast Road, Cradlewell Bypass, Jesmond Road, Sandyford Road, Portland Road, Stoddart Street, Crawhall Road, City Road and onto the Quayside to the finish at the Swing Bridge. This will lead to the closure of these roads between 13.45 and 15.00 on the 13th

(NB Coast Road and Jesmond Road closures will be westbound only - eastbound traffic will not be affected)
