Hoylake Gets Ready For The Open
The Royal Liverpool Golf Club sees the return of the golf tournament in July
The international sporting event returns after the last visit to the Wirral in 2006 when 230,000 came to the seaside destination during the three days of competition, bringing with them £75m to the regional economy.
Tiger Woods lifted the Claret Jug last time as a heatwave made the outdoor sport even more appealing for spectators.
People living and working around Hoylake have been sent letters from Wirral Borough Council about traffic management arrangements.
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.
For people coming by car, there will be three main routes into Hoylake signposted from the M53. Buses and coaches will go through Moreton towards Hoylake, the public will go through Saughall Massie Road to a public car park in Heron Lane, Meols, with junction three taking motorists to Hilbre School in Newton and Greasby Road.
There will be no parking in Hoylake, with a strict permit scheme for residents and businesses.
