A POPULAR Worcestershire family event has come up with a plan to tackle traffic after visitors were caught in two hour-long queues.

The Hanbury Countryside Show experienced major traffic issues last year with some attendees waiting in traffic for up to two hours from Worcester.

Many would-be visitors were forced to turn around and go home as traffic issues began to develop from as early as 10am.

To make sure guests do not face the same issues this year, organisers will be opening an extra entrance to the countryside show.

They said: "Please note the new additional access to Hanbury Countryside Show this year.

"All visitors approaching from the west (Droitwich and Bromsgrove direction) will enter the showground via a new gateway as shown on the map below.

"Traffic from the East (Redditch & Evesham) will continue to use Hollowfields Road where a one-way system will be in place for the whole day.

"All exhibitors will still access via Hollowfields Road. Please ensure you follow the road signs and directions of the AA personnel.

"In addition to the new entrance and after extensive professional consultations, further measures have been taken with additional signage and traffic personnel in the surrounding areas."

Organisers of the Hanbury Show said they weren't expecting such high numbers of visitors which caused the mass traffic problems last year.

The Hanbury Countryside Show is a showcase event for farming, the countryside and rural life.

The Park Hall Farm event has attracted 15,000 visitors in previous years.

The 75th annual Hanbury Show will be held on Saturday 2nd July and will be open from 9am to 6pm.
