Ayrshire Police division are well prepared for this spectacular event.
In July, the 145th Open Golf Championship will take place at Royal Troon in South Ayrshire.
This is one of the largest and most prestigious spectator events in the world and more than 200,000 spectators are expected to visit Troon and the surrounding area from the 10th to the 17th July 2016.
An enormous amount of planning and preparation is required for an event of this size and Ayrshire Division have been working closely with a wide range of partners to make this is a safe and enjoyable event for everyone and to minimise disruption to the people of Ayrshire.
Part of the planning includes a comprehensive Traffic Management plan and today, Divisional Commander, Chief Superintendent Gillian MacDonald was on patrol with Sergeant Blackley from Ayrshire Division’s Road Policing Unit checking the progress of the Traffic Management and Event plans.
This promises to be a very exciting week for Ayrshire with visitors coming from around the world and we are looking forward to being part of it.
