Road Closures

Residents, spectators and motorists are now able to view all the planned road closures for the 2018 Virgin Money London Marathon on an interactive map.

Road closures for the Marathon will be updated in real-time as the race progresses on Sunday 22 April.

The information will also be communicated instantly to sat-nav services to inform their instructions to drivers and to ensure that disruption to residents and road-users is kept to a minimum.
