Police have listed diversions that will affect the island’s roads during MS Amlin World Triathlon Bermuda on Saturday.

Certain stores in Hamilton will remain open, with some establishments choosing to extend their hours of business.

Traffic into the city and central parishes will be affected from 4am until the end of the day’s races.

Entry into Hamilton is recommended from the north, a spokeswoman said, with roads from Victoria Street northward remaining open.

Bulls Head, Elliott Street and King Street car parks will remain open, but Par-la-Ville car park will be open only to event volunteers from 6.30am to noon on Saturday.

Parking will be offered at Saltus Grammar School from 6pm to 9pm on Friday, and 6am to 7.30pm on Saturday, as well as the FedEx warehouse at Mills Creek Road on Saturday only.

On-street parking will not be offered on Front Street and Reid Street from 6am on Friday to allow for spectator barricades.

The following routes will be impacted by the age group races, scheduled between 7am and noon, and the elite races, set for 1.05pm to 6.30pm:

• Crow Lane and East Broadway, Pembroke will be closed all day or at least until 8pm.

• Middle Road between Montpelier Road, Devonshire, and Reid Street in Hamilton will be closed all day or at least until 8pm.

• Pitts Bay Road, Pembroke is set to be closed between Bermudiana Road and Serpentine Road.

• Stowe Hill, Paget is restricted to residents only.

• Harbour Road, Paget, will be closed beyond the junction with Lovers Lane.

• The Lane and Pomander Road, Paget will be closed.

• Trimingham Road in Paget is set to be closed from the south roundabout to Crow Lane.

• At the junction of Berry Hill Road and Point Finger Road, Paget, traffic will not be able to travel west.

• Serpentine Road, Pembroke, will be closed from Pitts Bay Road to Par-la-Ville Road.

A police spokesman said traffic from the western parishes heading for Hamilton would be directed to Tee Street, Devonshire, and will be able to travel as far as Montpelier Road, Devonshire — with an alternative route open via Orange Valley Road, Devonshire.

Traffic may also be diverted at the junction of Middle Road and North Shore Road, Smith’s.
