Cartmel Racecourse has selected The Traffic Management Company to provide event traffic management services for all events at the Cumbrian venue.

The Traffic Management Company already provides event traffic management services across the UK to clients including music festivals, country sports, local authorities, sporting events and stadia.

The company will be providing support to Cartmel Racecourse during behind closed door racing to help ensure the safety of all those arriving as they go through testing stations prior to admission to the course.

Andrew McQuillan, managing director of The Traffic Management Company, said of the new contract: “We are delighted to be working with Cartmel Racecourse to support their event day operations. We have identified some new innovation we can bring to improve traffic flow on event days and will work closely together to create the best possible experience for race goers once the public can return to the joy of watching racing in person.”

The Traffic Management Company will be recruiting a number of new staff to support this contract, and increase its presence in the North West.
