Council prepared for festival

The Isle of Wight Council has detailed revealed its plans to many traffic coming to the festival.

The main route for festival traffic from the Red Funnel terminal at East Cowes will be up York Avenue and along Whippingham Road where it will turn right into the Red Festival Car Park.

If there are any overly long hold ups on the Whippingham Road plans have been developed to turn festival traffic left on to Alverstone Road.

Here it can be ‘stacked’ and released into the network when the roads to the festival site are less busy.

Vehicles travelling from the Wightlink terminal at Fishbourne will be directed right on to Kite Hill, through Wootton, up Lushington Hill and right at the Racecourse roundabout and the left into the White Festival Car Park.
