Diversion at Whitley Pump for the half marathon 3 April 2016

This year’s Reading half marathon is on Sunday 19 March and many roads around Katesgrove will be closed for most of the morning and some of the afternoon. Even pedestrians can be affected because roads can become impossible to cross as runners stream past.

Roads can be closed at anytime between 7am and 3pm but indicative times are given as follows:

Street Times Section
Christchurch Road 9.30am – 12.30pm entire length
Kendrick Road 9.30am – 12.40pm entire length
London Road 9.45am – 12.40pm between Sidmouth Street
and Crown Street
London Street 9am – 12.40pm entire length
Mill Lane (north and southbound)  7am – 12.40pm entire length

The map on the marathon website is not very clear and does not show some roads such as Mount Pleasant and Silver Street.

Bus services will also be disrupted. There will be no Emerald number 5, 6 or 6a, nor Red number 9 for most of the morning.
