Traffic plans for The Open Golf at Hoylake

Measures designed to ensure smooth traffic flow during the Open Golf’s return to Hoylake have been revealed.

The eyes of the world will be on Wirral in July, and no stone is being left unturned by organisers tasked with the mammoth job of ensuring the event runs hitch-free.

More than 230,000 people are expected to descend on the town, for an event that is worth more than £75m to the area.

Motorists coming through Wallasey Tunnel are now greeted to the borough by a sign reading 'Welcome to Wirral - home of the Open 2014'.

During a press conference at Wallasey Town Hall this morning Mark Camborne, Wirral council’s lead officer for Open Golf Planning, said: "The traffic management plan is similar to that of 2006. Feedback from 2006 was that the traffic management measures worked incredibly well.

"So, we see no reason to change them. Our message to visitors is please make use of public transport.

"Ninety-nine percent of the population in Hoylake are in support of the event. There are people who don’t like golf.

"We are keen to assure them that we are protecting residential roads by implementing these traffic measures.

"There will be various road signs in place that will alter the road landscape of Wirral. Protecting the main route through Hoylake is a key part of our red route philosophy.

"I have attended four public meetings in Hoylake and we have been working with businesses to reassure them it will be business as usual."

There will be three main routes into Hoylake. The first, is for use mainly by buses and coaches, will take traffic along the M53, through Moreton.

Junction two will take motorists along Saughall Massie Road to a public car park in Heron Lane.
