Information for Local Residents

We couldn’t deliver such a successful event and raise so much for charity without the amazing support of local residents, who have to deal with an interruption to the normal activity in the area. We are grateful for the cooperation we receive from local residents and that ensures that this popular event continues to go ahead each year.

We would like to draw your attention to the impact that this year’s event may have on those of you who live and work close to the airfield.

The air show traffic management plan has now been signed off by organisers, traffic management consultants and local police.  We wish to bring the following important information to the attention of residents in and around Albrighton:

In order to maintain efficient traffic flow, the following measures will be in place from 0630 to approximately 1200 on Sunday 9 June:

  • Vehicles travelling north on the A41 will not be able to head East on the M54 at Jn3.  Please find an alternative route to Jn2.
  • Vehicles travelling east on the M54 will not be able to head South on the A41 at Jn 3.  If you do depart at Jn3, you will be routed North to turn around at the A5 roundabout then head back south.

 

Road & Footpath Closures

The following will be closed to the general public between 0500 and 1800 on Sunday 9th June.

  • Bowling Green Lane (including Old Worcester Road and other extensions off of BGL)
  • Kennel Lane
  • Green Lane
  • Un-named Road to west of A464
  • Part of Newport Road between 1100 and 1800
  • Rectory Road
  • Footpath from Green Lane to Bowling Green Lane

If residents need access in or out of Albrighton from the A41, can you please use Station Road rather than Newport Road or Rectory Lane.

Please note: David Austin Roses, The Albrighton Cricket and Tennis Club and Wyevale Garden Centre will not be open on 9th June.

Other major roads in the local area will have restrictions, but there should be no need to make any special arrangements for vehicle movements.

The above roads will be subject to a temporary no stopping order. One-way systems will be in place on Long Lane, Old Worcester Road and Neachley Lane.

In all cases, it would be helpful if you carry some form of photo ID that can prove your residence so that we can expedite your journey.
