Drivers warned to check for road closures during King’s Coronation weekend

…By Roland Peterson for TDPel Media. With millions of Brits preparing to celebrate King Charles III’s coronation over the upcoming bank holiday weekend, experts have issued a warning to check for road closures to avoid getting stuck.

Graham Conway, managing director of Select Car Leasing, urged people to do some research online to find out when and where street parties would be staged.

The events will take place across the three-day bank holiday weekend, with many local councils revealing details of where street parties are being held on their websites and releasing lists to the local press.

Organisers of street parties had to inform authorities up to 12 weeks in advance and closures will take into account factors such as bus routes, traffic flow and the potential impact on local businesses.

Some smaller gatherings, such as those on quiet cul-de-sacs, do not require official permission.

However, major towns and cities are hosting larger events to honour the King’s official crowning ceremony.

Central London will see a host of road closures to make way for the main procession from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Abbey on Saturday, May 6.


Conway emphasised that the festivities must pass off safely, with awareness of local events and their impact on personal plans being crucial.

Analysis and commentary

The coronation of King Charles III is an important occasion for many Brits, and street parties are expected to take place across the country.

However, this also brings potential disruption to local roads and neighborhoods.

The warning to check for road closures highlights the need for effective communication and coordination between local authorities and communities to ensure that celebrations pass off smoothly and safely.

Organisers of street parties are required to inform the authorities well in advance to allow for proper planning and to avoid disruption to emergency services and public transport.

The government’s guidance on street parties emphasises the importance of maintaining access for emergency services, notifying transport providers in advance, and ensuring that the party does not cause undue inconvenience to neighbours and local businesses.

Overall, the coronation presents an opportunity for communities to come together and celebrate, but this must be done responsibly and with consideration for the wider community.


Effective planning and communication will be key to ensuring a successful and enjoyable weekend for all.
