Local residents are being warned to expect higher than normal traffic conditions on Thursday as the University of Bath hold an open day, attracting thousands of people to the city.
The open day on the 20th June is a chance for prospective students to come to Bath and view the popular university. They’ll be able to experience what is on offer as well as find out more about the local area.
The visitors will also be able to attend lectures and talks about the courses and opportunities on offer.
The event, being held at the Claverton campus, is set to bring an expected 8000 to 10,000 people to visit, bringing an influx of additional traffic to the major routes in and out of Bath.
It’s being held between 9am to 4pm and will affect traffic through the city at peak time.
The University’s last open day in September last year caused havoc across Bath, with an additional accident causing problems on North Parade and the Jane Austen gala taking place.
