Yesterday and today was a fantastic event for Yorkshire and tomorrow will be an amazing day for Stage 3 – Cambridge, Essex and London. The Tour passes through Saffron Walden, Sewards End, Radwinter, The Sampfords, Felsted and Finchingfield.

As many roads are closed to traffic, the ambulance bikes will be able to get to the public quickly should there be an incident. They carry defibrillators and oxygen.

Stage Three of the Tour de France comes to Essex on Monday, July 7:

• Roads close in Uttlesford and Braintree between 7.30am and 4pm; in Chelmsford between 8am and 5pm; in Epping Forest north of the A414 between 8am and 4pm; and in Epping Forest south of, and including the A414, between 9am and 5pm;

• The only roads that are closed are those that make up the Tour de France route; cul-de-sacs and no-through-roads connected to roads on the route will be open but may not be accessible;

• While the road closures are in place no vehicles, bicycles or horses are permitted on the route;

• Vehicle owners will not be able to park on the route while the road closures are in place;

• A list of bus services affected is available at www.LeTourEssex.com.
