Traffic Advice During Download

Local villagers have told us Download traffic from the West is possibly being routed off the A50/A38 and through Willington and Repton. With traffic lights already in Repton this is causing problems and the area is best avoided for now.

Although the Download Festival is happening over the border on Leicestershire Police’s patch this weekend, traffic in south Derbyshire may be affected over the next few days as people filter into the festival via Derbyshire’s roads.

Motorists using the M1 near junctions 23a and 24 may also see an increase in the volume of traffic. Anyone travelling to East Midlands Airport EMA should prepare more time for their journey too.

The campsite is now open, so if you live or travel in that part of our county, expect delays and allow extra time for your journey.
