Gardai, Wicklow County Council and event organisers have prepared a robust traffic management plan to minimise disruption for local residents and help people travel in and out of Bray as easily as possible.
As part of this, road closures and traffic restrictions will be in place throughout the weekend with full details available on www.BrayAirDisplay.com A number of ‘Park ‘n Ride’ car parks will be available for visitors over the two day event and organisers are making every effort to encourage visitors travelling by car to use these facilities. However, the strong message to those planning on attending the event is to use public transport, and allow extra time for the journey.
There will be parking at the IDA Business Park, Southern Cross Road. A shuttle bus will be in operation from the car park during the course of the event. The old Dell car park will also be available and will be serviced by shuttle bus also.
There will also be parking at BIFE on Novara Avenue and Dargle View Golf Club. Parking will cost €5.
Every local residential household within the road closure area will be asked to produce their driving license and a copy of a utility bill as proof of residency. If you would prefer to use a Vehicle Access Pass – they can be picked up from the Bray Municipal District Office from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Bring proof of identity, address and a cur- rent tax disc. A Temporary Restricted Airspace notice will be in place to protect Bray
Air Display participants and spectators, as well as traffic in and out of Dublin airport, for the duration of the event this Saturday and Sunday.
No drone activity will be permitted in the area for the weekend.
Spectator boats are welcome at the Bray Air Display but there will be marker buoys highlighting a ‘no boat zone’ to be managed by the Civil Defence and the Irish Coast Guard. The display will include some of the most skilled aerobatic performers from across the world with 22 aircraft and 12 jets.
On-the-ground activities will start at 12 midday each day, with the airshow itself from 3.30 p.m. on Saturday and 2 p.m. on Sunday
