Enfield to welcome Olympic torch tomorrow
Thousands of people are expected to cheer on 25 torchbearers carrying the Olympic flame through Enfield tomorrow afternoon.
Spectators are expected to gather at Betstyle Circus, in Waterfall Road, Southgate, to greet the Olympic Torch Relay as it enters the borough at approximately 3.14pm.
It will be carried from the top of Waterfall Road before arriving at Palmers Green High Street at 3.30pm. It is expected to hit The Bourne at approximately 4pm, where it will travel through Bourne Hill to arrive at Green Lanes at 4.16pm.
Torchbearers are due to reach Ridge Avenue at 4.35pm and arrive in Church Street at 4.39pm. The torch will then be carried through Church Street and is due to arrive in Fore Street, in Edmonton, at 5.02pm.
Crowds will say farewell to the Olympic torch as it leaves Enfield at 5.20pm to travel through Haringey.
However, drivers will experience disruption as rolling road closures will be enforced during the procession to allow torchbearers to travel safely. Waterfall Road will be the first to close, from 3.10pm, to allow the procession to pass.
Each road will then close just before the procession arrives and is due to re-open once the torch has departed.
Enfield Council has identified key viewing points for crowds to gather along the route. Palmers Green High Street, and the stretch between The Bourne and Bourne Hill have been pinpointed as safe places for people to gather.
Green Lanes north, Ridge Avenue and Fore Street are also considered practical places for people to stand and watch the torchbearers.
War hero Jack Otter, 24, of Chase Side, who lost both legs and his left arm while serving the country in Afghanistan in 2009, will be one of the torchbearers.
Criminal defence solicitor Alured Darlington, 76, will be one of Enfield’s torchbearers for his role in campaigning for women’s rights.
Sportsman Daren St Clair, 27, who came fourth in the European under 23 Championship will also carry a torch for his dedication to athletics.
