Roads will be busy in South Warrington over the August Bank holiday weekend (28th, 29th and 30th August) with over 50,000 people expected to attend the Creamfields 2015 event in Daresbury.
The majority of festival goers are likely to be heading for the site on Friday and Saturday morning and leaving on Monday morning. These are the times when residents can expect some congestion on local roads.
Drivers in the area are being advised to allow extra time for their journeys and to be alert as the roads will be busier than normal.
