All the information about how events at Cheltenham will impact local residents and road users
For The Open (November) and The Festival (March) a temporary traffic order is in place on the streets around the course. Visitors will not be able to park in these streets, as only local residents will be able to park using their parking permit. For local residents, two parking permits are issued by the council, via MiPermits (http://www.mipermit.com/). To order your permit please call Mi Permits on 0345 520 7007.
Evesham Road (A435) - During The Festival and the first two days of The Open, there will be a closure of Evesham Road (A435) in a southbound direction, for local road users, between approximately 10.30am and 13.30pm. The road will then be closed again between approximately 16.30pm - 19.30pm (or 15.00pm and 18.30pm at The Open). This will allow cars to enter the course but not allow non-raceday traffic to travel south to Cheltenham. Other routes will be signposted accordingly.
The closure will come into place at the crossroads (names as Smiths Lights) between Evesham Road, Southam Lane and Hyde Lane. Cars and vans not attending the racing, but using the local roads, will be asked to use Hyde Lane towards Swindon Village and Cheltenham, vehicles over 7.5T will turn left down Southam Lane and travel via Prestbury. It is advised that anyone coming from the Tewkesbury and Evesham area use the M5 Southbound from Jn 9 to Jn 10.
This proposal has been put forward by Cheltenham Racecourse and the local council, police and highways as a variation on the temporary traffic order previously granted to Cheltenham Racecourse on racedays.
Due to the November Race Meeting, Services 99, 94U, D and E will not operate from the Racecourse Park and Ride site on Friday 11th and Saturday 12th November 2016. Service 99 will instead use Cheltenham Town Football Club car park as an alternative Park and Ride site. Stagecoach would like to apologise to all passengers for any inconvenience this may cause.
