Honorary police will be closing Rue Carree from the Float Depot to Route des Quennevais while the float is on the narrow road. People wanting to go to Les Ormes should approach Les Ormes from the direction of Mont a La Brune, not Route des Quennevais. The float takes about 20 minutes to reach Route des Quennevais.
Once on Route des Quennevais, the float will head towards the airport on Avenue de la Commune and then on to L’Avenue de la Reine Elizabeth II to meet with other floats at the top of Beaumont Hill at 6.00am. Although we will not be closing these main roads we request that approaching drivers give as much room as possible for the float – it is big, wide and slow moving.
A convoy of floats will then travel down Beaumont Hill to Beaumont filter in turn, Route de la Haule and Victoria Avenue. Beaumont Hill will be closed while the floats are travelling down it.
If you are wishing to get to the airport in the early morning we would advise drivers to use alternate routes if possible and to allow extra time for journeys as there will be delays.
