Tilbury Carnival

Whereas application has been made to the Borough Council of Thurrock for the temporary closure of the roads described below, on the occasion of the Tilbury Carnival on Saturday 25 June 2022 as the roads are likely to be thronged or liable to be obstructed.

And whereas the said Borough Council is satisfied that the closure of the highways so described is necessary as the ordinary day to day use of the highway is likely to be obstructed or dislocated by a substantial number of persons.

And whereas the Police have raised no objection to the making of this Order provided that appropriate arrangements are made to exclude vehicles from the roads affected by this Order other than those vehicles associated with the event and that suitable closure notices are displayed.

Now therefore the Borough Council of Thurrock in pursuance of the powers conferred by Section 21 of the Town Police Clauses Act 1847 and of all other enabling powers hereby makes the following Order:

1. Hume Avenue, Feenan Highway, Spencer Walk, Arkwright Road, Civic Square, Malta Road, Dock Road, Sydney Road, Canberra Square, Montreal Road, Hairpin Bridge and St Andrews Road (A1089) shall be temporarily closed in order to facilitate the Tilbury Carnival between the hours of 10am and 3pm.

2. The Order will come into force at 10am on Saturday 25 June 2022 and roads will be closed for sufficient time to allow the parade to pass through the route.
