There will be waiting restrictions in place to the north side (in front of the stadium, between the entrance to the car park westwards to its junction with Marionville Road). Parking will not be allowed in this area.All bus stops will be out of use and temporary bus stops will be in place.

We apologise to local residents for any disruption caused. Any enquiries about the road closures and parking restrictions should be made to Clarence on 0800 23 23 23 (8am to 8pm).
