Wales vs. Scotland Travel Advice
A full road closure will be in place in Cardiff City Centre from 2:50pm until 8pm for Wales Vs Scotland at the Principality Stadium (KO Saturday 13th February – 4.50pm)
Additional roads will also close at 5pm and if safety allows, the restrictions are planned to be lifted at 8pm. The road closures may be extended, subject to the number of revellers in the city centre and crowd safety after the match.
With 74 000 spectators expected to travel in to Cardiff on Saturday, everyone is being advised that enhanced security measures will be in operation to enter the stadium. If you bring a bag, expect to be searched and be advised that this may delay you from getting into the stadium on time.
Given the additional security arrangements, the Authorities are advising spectators to leave plenty of time for your journey to get into the city centre and the stadium.
The queuing system at Cardiff Central Train station will also vary with each 6 Nations fixture held in Cardiff, to accommodate ongoing building developments, so we strongly advise those using the trains to identify their queuing lane for their return journey before the match begins.
