November 29, 2012 No Comments »

74,000 rugby fans are expected at Millennium Stadium as Wales takes on Australia at the Millennium Stadium.

Wales will play their final autumn international game at the Millennium Stadium this Saturday, and the city’s transport bosses are once again urging people to travel into the city centre using public transport wherever possible.

A crowd of 74,000 is expected for the game against Australia, which has a 2.30pm kick-off.

If you have to travel by car, park and ride facilities will be open at Cardiff City Football stadium in Leckwith at a cost of £6 per car from 9.30am until 6.30pm. The last bus will leave the pick-up points at 6pm.

Coaches can park off Sophia Close at a cost of £10 each, and cars can also park here for the same price.

A number of road closures will also be in place on Saturday, with the route to the front of Cardiff Central Station, including Station Approach in Central Square from its junction with Wood Street, closed from 9am until 6pm.

From 12.30pm until 5.30pm, the following roads will also be closed:

  • Kingsway from its junction with North Road/Boulevard de Nantes to its junction with Duke Street.
  • Cowbridge Road East, from its junction with Cathedral Road to its junction with Westgate Street.
  • Tudor Street from its junction with Clare Road to its junction with Wood Street, although access for residents and traders will be allowed.
  • Plantagenet Street and Beauchamp Street from their junctions with Despenser Place to their junctions with Tudor Street. Again, access for residents and traders will be permitted.
  • Duke Street, Castle Street, High Street, St.Mary Street, Caroline Street, Wood Street, Central Square, Westgate Street, Quay Street, Guildhall Place, Golate, Park Street, Havelock Street and Scott Road will also all be closed in their entirety.

There will also be changes to many of Cardiff Bus’ services from 11.30am until 6.30pm. Details of all alterations can be found here. Once again, Cardiff Bus will also extended its recently-launched Group Iff ticket for Saturday, meaning that up to four adults can have unlimited travel for the whole day for £6.

As with previous weeks, information on train travel to and from Cardiff can be found on Arriva Trains Wales’ website. This includes a plan of the queuing system that will be in place after the game (see below), and passengers should expect to queue for up to 45 minutes.
