Police: Bermuda Day Race To Impact Traffic

May 19, 2015

The police have reminded people that this year’s Bermuda Day race starts in the east, and said “this will significantly impact traffic” and have advised persons who are travelling on the early morning flights that day to be at the airport by 8am.

A police spokesperson said, “Members of the public are reminded that the 2015 Appleby Bermuda Half Marathon Derby organizers have changed the route of this year’s road running race to come out of the east end.”

“As a result this will significantly impact traffic, especially for those who live in the east end as well as those intending to travel to the east end on Monday, May 25th.”

“In particular, we would like to advise persons who are travelling on the early morning flights May 25th to make arrangements to be at the L.F. Wade International Airport by 8am.”

“The full details of road closures and other critical information around the Bermuda Day holiday weekend will be provided at an upcoming press conference,” the police added.

  1. Oh for goodness sake! says:

    So if a flight goes out at 1:30 pm travellers ( i.e. visitors )have to be at the airport by 8 am or earlier??

    What contingencies are there for emergency vehicles travelling between the KEMH and the East End during this period?

    If the race is going to be disruptive to main roads and the airport why not simply leave the routefrom the West End via Harbour Road into Hamilton? In that way there is minimal disruption to traffic or emergency vehicles – IMO

    Soooo….what is the problem? By the west end of Kindley Field Road they will be well spread out & running/walking with the flow of traffic. No problem to airport bound traffic at all.

    Calculating the bulk of the runners will be beyond Blue Hole Hill by 9:45am. Disruption should be minimal.
