The meetings and events arm of the University of Warwick says steps have been taken to avoid disruption when the Aviva Women’s Tour 2016 cycle race passes through next month.

Stage Two of this year’s race will include the university campus on Thursday 16 June, and Warwick Conferences says its clients have been briefed regarding road closures on the day.

There will be no vehicular access to the Scarman, Radcliffe and Arden buildings between 10am and 11am.

A spokesman said: “In order to ensure the safety of all participants and general members of the public the university has been working in collaboration with the event organisers and local authorities to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum.

“The team at Warwick Conferences have continually kept clients updated with the developments ensuing that they are fully aware of the road closure and any potential implications this may have on the running of their event. As always, we are liaising with our clients to ensure the continued smooth running of their event, and at this stage we don’t expect any of our events to experience adverse disruption.”
