Many other roads will be inaccessible, even if they are themselves not being used for the race.
Anyone travelling on Tuesday should plan their journey in advance to avoid problems due to the closures, or park their car outside of the area in advance as police have said that once the roads are closed they will not be able to make any exceptions, although emergency services will still have access to all parts of the town.
Unlike previous years, Stierstadt and Weißkirchen will not be cut off completely, and will be accessible via the Frankfurter Landstraße / Rosa-Luxemburg-Straße, and leaving the town from these parts will be possible by using the Homburger Landstraße to reach the A661.

Buses 41, 42 and 43 will not be running until 2.19pm.

As the TaunaBad car park will be inaccessible to road traffic for part of the day, the pool will remain closed.
