Traffic cuts for the Spanish cycling championship
On the 24th, 25th and 26th of June various cycling events will take place during the Spanish Cycling Championships, mainly affecting the municipalities of Sant Llorenç des Cardassar, Son Servera and, to a lesser extent, Capdepera, as follows:
Individual time trial on the 24th
As a result of this event, several roads will be closed to traffic according to the following map:
Section marked in ORANGE: closed to traffic from 08:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m
Section marked in BLUE: closed to traffic from 11:45 a.m to 2:30 p.m.
Due to the road structure of the coastal area of Sant Llorenç, all traffic, in both directions, converges at the roundabout at Avinguda Bon Temps and Avinguda Llevant. With the cut in the Portocristo – Son Servera road (MA 4023), it is impossible for this point to take on the volume of traffic that it usually distributes together with the volume that it should take on due to the closure of the road.
Therefore, if your itinerary involves having to pass this point (Avenida Llevant) during the race timetable, please adapt the timetable of your journey or use alternative routes for journeys that involve going around this roundabout between 08.30 am and 2 pm.
