Visitors to the Nantwich Food Festival are being urged to plan their journey to the event this weekend and allow extra travel time.
More than 30,000 people are expected to visit the festival between Friday (September 2) and Sunday (September 4), where some localised traffic delays are anticipated.
Park-and-ride facilities will be available at Nantwich Town Football Club, Barony Park and Brine Leas School, with visitors also being advised to determine if public transport is a viable option for travel to and from the festival.
Improvements being undertaken by Barratt Homes – to upgrade the existing traffic lights at the High Street/Welsh Row junction to improve their efficiency – continue, following a delay to works on site.
Cheshire East Council’s highways team has instructed that Barratt Homes manually control the traffic from 7am–9pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday to help minimise impact on event goers as much as possible. During this period, Welsh Row will be closed to improve capacity at the junction and reduce waiting times.
