T in the Park Travel and Road Restrictions

The historic move of the open air music event named T in the Park from Balado, Perthshire to Strathallan Castle, Perthshire has been signed off and the event is almost upon us. The new location brings with it some interesting logistical challenges and with that in mind there will be some road closures, temporary speed limitations and a great deal more care and attention required if you are driving around the area during the event. This is a brief summary of the changes but full details and further information can be found here at the T in the park website.

Temporary Traffic Restrictions: Local access only road closures and one way systems will be in place from 00.01hrs on Thursday 9th July until approximately 2pm on Monday 13th July.

Local Resident Vehicle Passes: Local residents who need access through the local access only road closures during the event will require a vehicle pass. These allow local residents to access local road closures only. The one way systems still apply.

Vehicle passes will be issued in advance to local residents in the affected areas.  If you do not live on one of the affected routes but require a vehicle pass for access to this route during the festival, please submit an enquiry including your address and contact number by selecting the CONTACT US section on the T in the Park website here

Speed Restrictions: There will be 30mph speed restrictions on approach routes and on the roads immediately surrounding the festival during the event. There will also be speed restrictions before and after the event during the build and break. Signage will be in place on these routes to advise.

T in the Park – Local Shuttle Buses: There is no suitable walking route to or from T in the Park.

Local residents attending the event should not risk walking on the side of the road or walking through fields. Free buses will be available for local resident ticketholders travelling to and from the event from several departure points in the local area. All of these services will drop off and pick up at the West Pick Up and Drop Off Point at the event – see cartoon map below for location.
