CarFest

This information is provided by Bolesworth Estate to help local residents who are not attending CarFest to plan their journeys over the weekend.

  • Harthill Lane and Bolesworth Hill Road will be subject to one way systems to allow traffic into the event in the morning and leave in the evening. The one way systems will reverse later in the day.
  • In the mornings, from 8am, both roads will become one way Northbound from the AA534 unil approx. 2pm. From around 7pm both roads will become one way Southbound taking traffic away from the event to the A534 until midnight.
  • This pattern will be repeated on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the event, between 2pm and 7pm. Between midnight and 8am a normal 2 way flow will be in operation.
  • CarFest Traffic staff will do their upmost to make residents aware of what phase is in play using directional arrows outside your properties so you can plan your journey accordingly.
  • Please note a further one way system will operate on the Monday morning after the event from the Bolesworth Hill Road / Dark Lane junction flowing southbound on the A534. This is to facilitate visitors leaving the campsites.
  • Residents of Harthill can exit via Dark Lane or Burwardsley during the inbound phase of taffic (approx 8am to 2pm), otherwise via Harthill Lane onto the A534 during the outbound phase (approx 7pm until midnight).
