Plans include the earlier introduction of a new exit gate which will ease traffic flow on the two main gates, extra car parking marshals to direct traffic and road traffic signals and traffic staff at key junctions to mange the flow out on the main roads surrounding the aerodrome.
The new traffic plan has been put together by the Safety Advisory Group which comprises the Surrey Police, Surrey Fire & Rescue, South East Coast Ambulance Service, Surrey County Council Highways Agency, Environmental Agency and Emergency Planning Officer and Dunsfold Park.
Extra road signage and better communication with visitors will also go some way to ensuring traffic queues are at a minimum this August Bank Holiday.
Jamie McAllister, Event Director, Wings & Wheels comments: “We took the decision to hold Wings & Wheels over two days to spread visitor numbers and help with traffic flow. We’ve also invested in a bigger traffic management initiative which will see our own staff out on the roads around the aerodrome managing the traffic flow and ensuring visitors can get off site as quickly and safely as possible. We’re confident that traffic and parking is improving every year and these new measures will herald an even better system for 2010.”
Attracting phenomenal crowds of over 25,000 in 2009 with some of the finest aircraft and motoring displays in the UK, Wings & Wheels is not just an Airshow, it’s an exciting weekend of family entertainment.
The two day show is being held over the August Bank Holiday, Sunday 29th and Monday 30th August, at Dunsfold Park near Guildford, Surrey and is open to spectators from 9.00 to 18.00.
Tickets prices remain the same as 2009 and start from: £16 for adults, £5 for under 15’s and £36 for a family. Hospitality packages start at £120 per person. For more information or to book a ticket visit www.wingsandwheels.net or call 01483 542226.
Wings & Wheels is promoted by Dunsfold Park Limited to help raise monies for nominated charities: Brooklands Museum Trust, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance, Cranleigh Village Hospital Trust and Help for Heroes.
