Balmoral Show 2019: Traffic and travel arrangements
The PSNI has issued some traffic and travel advice ahead of this year's Balmoral Show.
The Balmoral Show will be taking place daily from 9.30am on from Wednesday (May 14) to Saturday (May 19) at Eikon Exhibition Centre at Balmoral park, Halftown Road, Lisburn.
Visitors are requested to leave plenty of time for their journey and as with any major event be prepared for potential delays.
Those wishing to attend should consider using public transport if possible. Non-show traffic should try to avoid the area around the Halftown Road, A3 Moira Road, Harrys Road and Hillsborough Road/Blaris Road when possible during show hours.
Also try to avoid arriving or leaving the show during the morning or evening rush hour when traffic generally is at its peak elsewhere.
