Parking restrictions to be introduced in Hoylake during The Open

Wirral Council has released the full list of roads where parking restrictions will be in place for the Open.

The new rules come in as Hoylake expects to receive 250,000 visitors for one of the most prestigious competitions in golf.

The 13th time Hoylake has hosted the Open, this year is expected to bring in more visitors than ever before with the event taking place between 16 and 23 July.

To deal with the demand, Wirral Council has introduced temporary car parks and parking restrictions to help manage traffic.

People are being encouraged to come in by public transport with train services doubling. West Kirby train station will also be closed for the event.

Park and Ride car parks are being set up with free drop off and pick ups with a dedicated bus service to the course. Parking or stopping near the course or on the main routes into Hoylake will not be allowed with Merseyside Police enforcing this.
