However, Ashtown Gate shall be entry only in the morning and exit only in the afternoon. This is also a dedicated emergency route, and in the event of an emergency the area between the North Road and Ashtown Gate will be cleared of all traffic and the area shall be sterile for emergency service use only.


There are two official car parks for Bloom:
