As the Olympic planners unfortunately chose not to send the Olympic Torch through Audlem, Crewe is probably the most convenient spot to see it pass by
On the morning of Thursday May 31st, the streets of Crewe will be thronged with people as the Olympic flame passes along the streets seen in the map — you can enlarge it by clicking on the map.
At approximately 8.00am the torch convoy will change into torchbearer mode from the junction of Hungerford Road with Coleridge Way. The torch will then travel along Hungerford Road into Earle Street and past the Municipal Buildings, turning left into the Market Street pedestrian area.
From here it will continue onto Edleston Road, and then turn left onto Nantwich Road and past Crewe railway station. It will then travel past the roundabout onto Crewe Road past MMU Cheshire, and then revert into torch convoy mode at Springfield School at approximately 8.30am.
There will be some road closures which are likely to cause significant disruption to traffic and public transport. Residents are being advised to allow plenty of time for their journeys during the morning.
Those travelling in their own vehicles to see the flame are being encouraged to set off early and park in off-street car parks.
For full details of the torch relay in Cheshire East, including the route, timings and road closures, as well as information on the London 2012 Olympic Games, go to www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/2012
If you have photos from the torch relay that you would like to share, you can upload them to Cheshire East Council's official 2012 photographic archive on Flickr.
The site has been set up to bring together photographs of the various national events that being celebrated in 2012.
