Olympic Torch Arrangements for Theale - Latest

The torch will be paraded through Theale tomorrow.

The parade will start in Hoad Way at about 10:05. The torch will then be carried through the High Street and Church Street. It will finish at the junction of The Green and St. Ives Close at about 10:20.

About 3,500 schoolchildren are expected to watch the torch carried through Theale. There will also be many adults (one torch bearer has invited 50 family and friends!). The schoolchildren will be arriving from about 08:30. Pavements have been marked to show where different schools should stand. It will be helpful if other spectators could stand in areas not marked out for schools.

Parking in the above roads will be banned between 1 am and midday. Cars illegally parked will be towed into adjacent roads. Please note that the parking ban also applies to vehicles with a resident's parking permit.

A temporary car park will be provided at the eastern end of the High Street (between Woodfield Way and the M4). The one planned on the recreation ground in Englefield Road cannot be used because the ground is too soft because of recent heavy rain.

Hoad Way, High Street, The Green and some roads off will be closed from about 30 minutes before the torch is due. Please note that the A4 through Calcot will be closed before the torch reaches Theale.

No buses will serve the bus stops in Theale between 09:30 and 10:30. The nearest stops that will be served during this time will be in Waterside drive (on the Arlington Business Park) and on the A4 at the end of Wigmore Lane.
