Bristol proclamation: All the road closures as city prepares to proclaim King Charles III

Bristol will hold its proclamation event tomorrow (September 11) with several key roads set to be closed.

Several city centre roads will be closed tomorrow (September 11) as College Green hosts an official proclamation event at 1pm to proclaim His Majesty King Charles III as the new Monarch.

The roads will be closed, and parking suspended in the area, from 6am - 6pm.

The proclamation, the official declaration of the accession of the new Monarch, will be delivered by the High Sheriff of Bristol, accompanied by the Lord Lieutenant, Lord Mayor of Bristol and Bishop of Bristol.

The public is invited to attend the event - Bristol City Council advises people travel via public transport.

Road closures and diversions will be in place tomorrow

The road closures that will be in place tomorrow are:

  • Park Street
  • College Street
  • Frog Lane
  • Deanery Road
  • St George’s Road
  • College Green

Any vehicles parked in College Street or Frog Lane car parks will need to be moved by 5am on Sunday or they will have to remain there until the roads reopen. College Street and Frog Lane car parks will also not be available to use during these closures.

These aforementioned areas will be coned off later today (September 10), vehicle lifting will be taking place on Sunday morning, and anyone parked within a coned off area or within the proposed road closure, risks having their car moved to another street.

Alex Raikes MBE DL, High Sheriff of Bristol, said: “The passing of her Majesty The Queen will have such an impact on the people of Bristol – many have told me how emotional they are feeling about her death.

“The outpouring of emotion and respect already being seen across communities is a clear indication of the high regard in which Her Majesty was held. “This public event will be an opportunity to mark the ascension of His Majesty the King in a respectful and considerate fashion.

“ Whilst this remains a difficult time for many as we collectively mourn the loss of such an important figure, it’s important that we take the time to welcome His Majesty The King onto the throne.”
