The public can raise issues about the impending visit of the Tour de France at a drop-in session.

Transport for London (TfL) event will take place on June 18 at the Woodford Methodist Church, in Derby Road, South Woodford, between 4:30pm and 7:30pm.

People will be able to question officials on potential disruption to the transport network ahead of the tour stage in Epping Forest, Redbridge and Waltham Forest on July 7.

After passing through Epping Forest the route is scheduled to run through High Road, Woodford Green, and Woodford New Road before entering Waltham Forest at Lea Bridge Road.

Road closures include Broadmead Road in Woodford Green, between the junctions with High Road and Broomhill Road and Chingford Lane, between High Road and Charter Road.

High Road, South Woodford, will be also closed between Woodford New Road and Broomhill Walk,  and Snaresbrook Road will shut between Rivenhall Gardens and Lea Bridge Road.

So....Epping high street has been jammed up for two weeks, as they dismantle the permanent crossings!
I mean .... All the money involved in doing that!
Then they jam, it up again to put temporary crossing points in....which will be removed again for the race!
Jamming us up again, and HOW much money does this cost!
Enough to keep the street lights at night on for a year I suppose.....
Then, they say in their wisdom, the council will decide which ones to put back.
What a JOKE!
Jamming, the traffic up yet again! All for a bike race!
The world has gone mad!

One of the biggest sporting events in the world right on the doorstep and all people can do is moan....it's embarrasing!!!! In France, Spain, Italy, Andorra, Belgium, etc, towns bid for the privelage of having the tour go through, and that's what it is, a privelage. The tiniest of French villages make a real effort to make their place look good, but all we can do hear is whinge about cats eyes and crossings...I despair, where's your civic pride??

Anyway, once all that urban tat is gone I hope most of it doesn't go back, it'll make the high street visually more pleasant.

Civic pride? Thatcher killed all that.

I can't wait for the Tour, can't believe it's coming to my home. Take a day off and enjoy it
