No Putney Embankment parking on Saturday
as Putney welcomes the Head of The River 2007
Motorists who normally park their cars on Putney Embankment are being advised that parking bays there will be suspended on Saturday for the annual Mens' Head of the River Race.
The influx of dozens of large rowing boat trailers for the races along with a big crowd of spectators means that parking spaces on the embankment have to be suspended.
The suspensions will commence at 6.30am on Saturday, March 31. Motorists who park their cars there overnight on Friday will need to move them by this deadline. Vehicles left in parking bays after this time are likely to be towed away.
Normal parking rules will be reinstated on Saturday evening once the rowing boats and their trailers have departed.
Signs notifying drivers of the changes have been placed on lamposts and signposts at numerous locations along Putney Embankment.
