Streets around Stamford Bridge are closed on Sunday May 16 to accommodate a victory parade being held by Chelsea FC following their double triumph, winning both the Premier League and the FA Cup.

Crowds will gather from 10am and the tour will begin at 1pm, when two open-topped buses with the players and support staff will leave Stamford Bridge's west entrance, and travel east along Fulham Road before turning right onto Hortensia Road, right again onto King's Road and then on to New King's Road.

At Eel Brook Common the buses will stop for ten minutes before continuing to Parsons Green where it will end around 2pm.

The route will be fully barriered and stewarded with pedestrian crossing points in operation to allow movement of people around the route.

For those who don't want to line the streets, a giant screen on Eeel Brook Common will show the live broadcast of the parade between 12.45pm and the end of the parade. Toilets and first aid facilities will be provided.

Chelsea says roads completely closed to traffic will be those required for the parade route:

• Fulham Road from Britannia Road to Hortensia Road

• Hortensia Road from Fulham Road to Kings Road

• Kings Road from Gunter Grove to Waterford Road

• New Kings Road from Waterford Road to Parsons Green

In addition, there will be a significant number of restrictions and diversions to stop through traffic.

All roads adjacent to the route will be restricted and stewarded. The stewards will facilitate the departure and return of residents on foot and in vehicles. The restrictions will also reduce fans entering the area trying to park.

Vehicles will not be able to cross the parade route. It is recommended to travel away from the parade route to the diversion route and then use the diversion route to circulate. If you are returning to the area it would be helpful to the stewards if you carry something with your address to speed up the identification of residents from visitors.

Only the roads on the parade route will have parking restrictions in place where vehicles will be relocated by parking enforcement teams from London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham and Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea.

The resident parking bays in Hortensia Road will be restricted from early morning on the parade day.

Significant planning has taken place with the local authorities and emergency services to ensure all services from official local authority vehicles and doctors to those responding to emergency calls can meet their obligations.

Following the parade, street cleaning and barrier removal teams will start as soon as crowd conditions allow. Once the barriers have been removed, a phased reopening of the roads will be considered by the event organisers, the local authorities and the Police assuming it is safe to do so. It is estimated all restrictions will be lifted by 5pm.
