Taxi guidance for Cartmel races
22 June 2017
A busier day than usual is expected at Cartmel races next week with the performance of Tom Jones following the racing action.
Sir Tom Jones’ performance will result in an increased number of visitors to the racecourse, meaning more traffic on the roads.
To ensure that traffic flows freely, no vehicles will be permitted to wait or park on any of the roads in the vicinity of Cartmel village.
Taxis must arrange with customers to use the designated taxi pick-up point which is located off the highway to the south of the racecourse. This should be done close to the main entrance/ exit to the concert enclosure.
A quicker alternative exit route will be provided for vehicles heading in the direction of Flookburgh, Newby Bridge, Greenodd, Ulverston or Barrow-in-Furness.
