Avoid Ruislip duck pond area Sunday 10:30 to 11:30

In order to faciliate the service at the war memorial by the duck pond and the parade down the High Street, there will be road closures in the area around the roundabout at the junction of Bury St, Eastcote Rd and Ruislip High St from 10:30 to 11:30.

Given that this is a signed diversion route for traffic unable to use BRS It will probably be best to avoid the area completely during these hours on Sunday.
