| Parking will be taken by rowing boat trailers
Motorists who normally park their cars on Putney Embankment are being advised that parking there will be suspended on Sunday for the annual Head of the River Fours rowing regatta.
Around 500 boats are due to take part in the four mile race between Mortlake and Putney Bridge and the influx of dozens of large rowing boat trailers along with a big crowd of spectators means that parking on the embankment has to be suspended.
The suspensions will commence at 8am on Sunday, November 14 – which is also Remembrance Sunday. Motorists who park their cars on Putney Embankment overnight on Saturday will need to move them by this deadline. Vehicles left in parking bays or on yellow lines after this time are likely to be towed away.
Normal parking rules will be reinstated at approximately 6pm on Sunday evening once the rowing boats, their trailers and the crowds have departed.
Signs notifying drivers of the changes have been placed on lamposts and signposts at numerous locations along Putney Embankment.
Residential roads linking Putney Embankment with the Lower Richmond Road will also be closed to all traffic on Saturday apart from residents.
