Transport Festival 2012 road closures


The 21st annual Festival of Transport is being held in Sandbach Town Centre over the weekend of Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 April 2012.

Police are asking drivers to be patient as traffic arrangements will be in place again this year.

The aim of the traffic management is to give top priority to the safety of participants, spectators and other road users. However some delays are inevitable in Sandbach town centre in order to ensure this. Complying with signed diversions and showing some patience will achieve the best results.

PC Anthony Hayhurst said, "Drivers need to think about the traffic arrangements when they plan their journeys.

"Police Officers will re-open roads and remove restrictions as soon as it is safe to do so. We are asking all drivers to heed the direction signs, follow instructions from Police Officers and generally show a bit of consideration for other people."

The following road closures will be implimnented to allow the event to take place:

Saturday 21/04/12: Congleton Road, Sandbach between Offley Road and High Town between 10:45 hrs and 11:30 hrs. Sandbach Common from 08:00 hrs to 17:00 hrs.

Sunday 22/04/12: High Street, High Town, Sandbach Commons and Congleton Road from Offley Road to its Junction with Hightown between 10:00 hrs and 16:00 hrs. There will be a further road closure for vehicles travelling from Sandbach towards the M6 Motorway along Old Mill Road between 13:00 hrs and 15:00 hrs from the juction of High Street to the junction of Congleton Road to allow the parade to take place.
