Commonwealth Games in Glasgow

July 2014 - The XX Commonwealth Games takes place in Glasgow from 23 July to 03 August 2014, which will see world-class sports men and women compete in a wide range of sports while being viewed by a global audience.

An event of this magnitude – attracting a high number of spectators from around the world - will inevitably result in significantly increased traffic in Glasgow City Centre and surrounding areas while the Games take place, particularly around and between the venues being used to host the events. Between 30 July and 02 August Edinburgh is also likely to see an increase in traffic as the Diving competitions take place at the Royal Commonwealth Pool.

Whilst events are largely confined to sports venues, customers should be aware that the Cycling Time Trial competition will take place on Thursday 31 July, which will result in a high number of road closures, changes to access, and parking restrictions in and around Glasgow City Centre, allowing adequate set-up time and ensuring the safety of spectators. It is unfortunately inevitable that deliveries and collections in Glasgow will take longer to be performed on this day. Other events utilising Glasgow’s road network take place on Sunday 27 July (Marathon) and Sunday 03 August (Cycling Road Race).

Biocair are working closely with airlines and other service providers to ensure any impact on the collection or delivery of shipments is kept to a minimum. The situation will be constantly monitored by Biocair’s Edinburgh office, and should any collections or deliveries be affected we will ensure this is communicated to our customers in a timely manner.

Tour de France Contingency Planning

June 2014 - The biggest annual sporting event in the world is coming to the UK between the Saturday 5th and  Monday 7th July. During this time there will be numerous road closures to enable the cyclists to pass through freely and also the expected huge crowds to view the event.

On Monday 7th, there will be severe disruption in Cambridge, with road closures being in effect from 07:00 until around 15:00. There will also be several road closures in and around London between 10:00 and 16:00.

Biocair are preparing contingency plans to ensure that there is no disruption to our collection and delivery service, however, where possible we would recommend booking collections in advance and avoiding the peak times of expected road closures.
