Travel Info

Road closures

Pre-event there will be a small stadium city centre road closure from 3:00pm – 9:30pm

The following roads are closed: Westgate Street, Park Street, Scott Road (however if crowds dictate pre-event and are witnessed to over spill onto the roads an extension to this closure will be implemented to ensure public safety – this would involve the closure of Wood St and Lower St Mary St along with a lane closure on Cowbridge Rd East adjacent to gate 1).

Post event while crowds exit the stadium there will be a need to extend the road closure to include restrictions on Cowbridge Rd East / Castle St / Duke St & Wood St adjacent to Millennium Plaza – this will be for a short period while the crowds exit the stadium. The timing of this restriction will depend on the finish time of the event – if the event finishes at 8:00pm this closure will last from 7:45pm – 8:45pm.

Additions:

  • The Speedway Fanzone will take place outside City Hall in the Civic centre. Road closure to facilitate this is as follow: King Edward VII Ave from its junction with City Hall Rd to its junction with Boulevard de Nantes from 5am to 8pm.
  • Civic Centre: Access to the Civic Centre will be controlled, with access allowed only for event-day parking, limited commuter parking, loading and access to private car parks. Roads affected include: King Edward VII Avenue, Museum Avenue, City Hall Road, College Road & Gorsedd Gardens Road
