America’s Cup road closures

Police have warned that traffic delays are expected today with the arrival of the America's Cup trophy and planned celebrations.

A police spokesman said: “The official America's Cup motorcade is anticipated to leave from LF Wade International Airport shortly after 2pm and travel via police escort to the Cabinet grounds, arriving around 5pm.

“Motorists should be aware that traffic delays are expected along the motorcade route, as well as in and around the City of Hamilton this afternoon.”

As a result of the America's Cup Celebration Party planned for this evening at 5.30pm, Front Street, between Queen Street and Court Street, as well as Burnaby Street, between Front Street and Reid Street, will be closed to all vehicles between 5pm and 8.30pm.

There will be no parking at this time on either side of Front Street, Burnaby Street and Parliament Street.

Car parks No 1 and No 5 will be closed, and motorists are reminded that all cars and motorcycles should be removed from these car parks by 5pm.

In addition, the Bermuda Police Service is authorised to divert traffic, restrict and authorise parking as the Commissioner of Police decides.
