Wales take on England in the crucial Six Nations decider at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday afternoon,

Thousands of rugby fans are expected in Cardiff to watch Wales take on England in the crucial Six Nations decider at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

All eyes will be on the Millennium Stadium on Saturday, as Wales take on England in the Six Nations decider.

With a crowd of 74,000 expected for the 5pm kick-off, Cardiff Council has once again urged anyone coming into the city centre to use public transport or coach, and if have to come in by car then to use the local authority’s park and ride service.

A park and ride will be open at Cardiff City Football Club from 9.30am on Saturday morning, with buses running throughout the day until 8.30pm. The car parks will close at 9pm.

Coach parking will be available off Sophia Close, at a cost of £10 per coach, and cars can also park there for £10 a car.

As usual on big match days, a number of road closures will be in place in the city centre. The route to the front of the Cardiff Central station– Station Approach in Central Square, from its junction with Wood Street – will be closed from 10am until 10pm.

The following roads will also be closed from 3pm until 8pm:

  • Westgate Street.
  • 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 St, 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.

Once again Arriva Trains Wales is advising passengers coming into Cardiff via train to allow plenty of time to travel, and if possible to arrive early.

After the match, passengers should return to Cardiff Central Station as soon as the game has finished. A queueing system will be in operation, details of which can be found below, and passengers may have to queue for up to 45 minutes. More travel advice from Arriva Trains Wales can be found here.
