In 2018 we will be operating a new shuttle bus stop in Blue Car Park. This will cut down pedestrian movement across Watergate Road and reduce delays for local drivers whilst the road is open.

A road closure on Watergate Road between Blue Car Park and the bottom of the hill at Watergate Bay will create a safe, sterile crossing between our main arena and campsites for festival goers. The road closure will be in operation 16.00 - 03.00 from Wednesday 8th August - Sunday 12th August.

As a measure to further reduce local traffic during the event we will implement a £20 car park re-entry fee to encourage use of our shuttle bus services.   

Monday departures will be improved for customers and local residents by making better use of the multiple routes away from the site to the A30. Traffic management teams will be based at key junctions and roundabouts in order to spread exiting festival traffic across the available road capacity.

Additional high capacity trains travelling to and from Newquay have been added to Great Western Railways services over the Boardmasters weekend.
