BALMORAL SHOW
Allow extra
time for show
traffic: PSNI
L
ARGE crowds are expected to attend
this year’s four day Balmoral Show
and police are urging motorists to
take care and leave extra time for
their journey.
Lisburn and Castlereagh PSNI District
Commander Supt Davy Beck said: “Of
course, we are delighted to see the Balmoral
Show back again this year.
“This is an excellent day out for everyone
and I want everyone to enjoy a positive
experience. Please help us to help you by
being patient and by driving and parking
responsibly and with regard to other road
users. I encourage everyone to use public
transport wherever possible or park only
in the designated locations if you have to
bring a vehicle.
“Public safety is of paramount importance
to us so anyone parked illegally could get
a fixed penalty notice for ignoring parking
restrictions or indeed may have their
vehicle towed. These restrictions will be
obvious so please do not ignore them.”
Rhonda Geary, operations director at the
show, said: “We want people to come and
enjoy the show and to get here by the safest
possible route.
“We have worked hard along with our
partners to improve the traffic management
plan to facilitate the flow of traffic into and
around the showground but, as with all
large events, people should be prepared
for potential delays. Prepare your route
beforehand, leave plenty of time for your
journey and follow the directions of police
and car parking stewards.”
Translink is asking visitors to plan their
journeys in advance and leave extra time to
make onward train connections. For more

If you are driving to the show, leave extra
time for your journey and follow directional
signage to the show grounds.
