Submitted by edg on Fri, 23 Dec '11 9.32am

Visitors to Holyrood Park in Edinburgh will be able to enjoy a safe, traffic-free environment during four days of road closures over the festive season.

In addition to the usual Sunday road closures on December 25th and January 1st, there will be further closures within the Park on Monday, December 26th and Monday, January 2nd, 2012.

The closures, which operate from 8am till 4pm, will be put in place at Queen’s Drive and Duddingston Low Road.

Martin Gray, Ranger and Visitors Services Manager for Historic Scotland at Holyrood Park, said : “These closures are in line with previous years. We experience a high volume of visitors on these days, and want to encourage people to use the Park in a safer, traffic-free environment.

“We would like to thank drivers for their understanding, particularly during the festive season when the Park is so busy and children are keen to take their new bikes and other Christmas presents outside for the first time.”

The High Road loop will remain open to cars, weather permitting, and drivers can leave their vehicles as usual the Park’s Holyrood Palace, Meadowbank and Duddingston car parks.
