Advice for rugby fans in Edinburgh this weekend

Rugby fans heading to watch Scotland in the 2013 RBS Six Nations this weekend are being advised to take note of traffic and travel information.

In their final home game of this Six Nations tournament, Scotland are playing host to Wales tomorrow (Saturday 9 March, kick-off 2.30pm) and 67,000 spectators are expected to flock to Murrayfield Stadium for the match.

The Council is working closely with Lothian and Borders Police and British Transport Police to keep road and pedestrian traffic moving smoothly before and after the game.

A number of temporary diversions and parking restrictions will be in place, with Police and stewards on hand to help direct members of the public from the Stadium to the city centre. 

Traffic is likely to be busy at the West End of the city centre due to ongoing essential tram works at Lothian Road, so those travelling to the match by car are advised to plan their journey accordingly.

The crossing point at St John's Church will be reopened over the weekend to accommodate the expected increase in pedestrian traffic.
