News On The Queues - Beware Of The Show

Beware the roads of mid-Warwickshire next week, as Royal Show organisers and emergency services get ready to deal with up to 200,000 visitors.

The annual event brings chaos to roads around Kenilworth, Leamington and southern Coventry and police say people should plan their journey well in advance.

Vehicles are directed to approach the area from the advertised radial routes that are designed to get traffic in to and out of the show with the least delay.

Police say it is vital that people follow the route advice and signs and cooperate with the officers who are directing the traffic.

And they say local drivers who are not visiting the show (running Monday to Thursday at the NAC showground) should either allow more time or use alternative routes.

Insp George Browning of Warwickshire Police Traffic department said:

“While we do everything we can to minimise inconvenience, we ask everyone to adopt a sensible approach throughout the Royal Show period and plan their journeys carefully.

“A number of options are possible, including varying or extending journey times, using an alternative route or using public transport.

“Above all, please be patient and leave yourself plenty of time.”
