Caldwell Road between the Dunns Close and Avenue Road junctions will be closed from 8am and will reopen once the carnival has finished and all carnival traffic has dispersed, which will be approximately 4pm.
‘Rolling’ road closures will take place around the town centre carnival route (see map) starting with Avenue Road at 12.45pm. Parts of Avenue Road will remain closed for the duration of the carnival to allow the safe return of the procession so please use alternative routes between 12.45pm – 4pm. Other roads along the procession route will close and reopen as the carnival procession passes through the town.
If possible please avoid driving through the town centre between 12.45pm – 4pm and bear in mind access to closed off areas will only be given to emergency services and carnival officials.
Drivers who find themselves waiting at closed junctions please show patience and respect the volunteers manning the closed off areas.
Remember… the Carnival only happens once a year for a few hours and is for local good causes 🙂
