This article is old - Published: Monday, Jun 27th, 2016

With the Stereophonics set to play at the Racecourse ground this Saturday, police in Wrexham are again reminding residents, visitors and especially motorists, to make plans to avoid getting caught up in traffic. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

More than 20,000 fans are expected for the sell-out concert on Saturday evening with popular support bands playing throughout the afternoon. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Traffic plans drawn up by the council and concert organisers mean; ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

  • Mold Road will be one-way out of town from 1pm until 9.45pm; with all inbound traffic using alternative and diverted routes into town.
  • Park and Ride users and coaches to the event will be directed through town, via Ruthin Road or Chester Road. Coaches will be allowed to drop off on the inbound side of Mold Road before re-joining the outbound carriageway.
  • Residents will also have to access the roads opposite the stadium via the town centre.
  • There will be a full closure of the Mold Road from 9.45pm while the stadium is emptying, though residents on neighbouring residential streets will continue to have access.
  • During the full closure, Central Road emerging from Central Retail Park (near Dunelm Mill) will be coned to one lane and traffic will be directed into Regent Street towards town.
  • Crispin Lane will be closed at the access to the rear of the stadium.
  • A Park and Ride bus service will run between the council’s offices on Ruthin Road and the stadium.
  • Signs will be in place to direct concert-goers to appropriate car parks or the Park and Ride facility.

Supt Alex Goss said; “With such large numbers of people coming to town it is important that concert goers, motorists, shoppers and residents are aware of the traffic arrangements drawn up by the organisers and the council. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

“The better everyone is informed, the easier it will be to avoid congestion and disruption.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
