FURIOUS John Hutchinson has hit out at the marathon road closures he believes will harm his business.

John, secretary of the Ivy Leaf Club, on Suffolk Street, Hendon, said he first became aware of the proposed closures for Sunday’s Marathon of the North when signs appeared on lampposts.

He says he is not sure how his staff and customers will reach the club.

“Nobody told us anything about this whatsoever,” he said.

“We’re living day to day and we need our customers but they can’t get in. Even I’ll struggle to get in.

“They’re saying all businesses will be open as normal but we won’t be.”

Allison Curbishley, a director of the group organising the race, DS Media and Events, says that flyers were posted through every door on the route and that she hopes the people of Sunderland can focus on supporting the event.

She said closures would be in place for as little time as possible.

Therefore, where runners have passed a given area of the course, sections of road will be reopened.

“As soon as runners clear an area the roads will open again,” she said.

“We’re taking a lot of calls from people worried about this but we have to just focus on putting on a great event for the 4,500 runners and get Sunderland back on the map.

“We know it could be a little inconvenient but we hope the city will embrace it.”

The Echo reported earlier this week of complaints about the road closures, with residents saying they will be unable to get out and about.

Brian Young, 77, of South Bents, said no-one would be able to get out of his estate, except on foot, due to the road being shut between 8am and 4pm.

Sunderland City Council’s full closure schedule contains details of 305 roads, junctions and parts of streets to be shut for all or some of the event.

Bus services:

BUS services in Sunderland will be disrupted due to the Marathon of the North.

Temporary road closures this Sunday will affect Stagecoach bus services in the Sunderland area between 8am and 6pm.

Large areas will be closed to traffic during the race, preventing normal bus access.

Buses will be unable to serve a number of areas including Seaburn, Fulwell, Dene Estate, Roker, Wheatsheaf, John Street/Fawcett Street, The Docks, Hendon, Grangetown, Ashbrooke, Barnes Park or Durham Road (east of the Prospect) until late afternoon.

For more information on the changes call 0871 200 22 33 or visit www.stagecoachbus.com.
