Wales rugby fans and bus users in Cardiff are being urged to plan their journeys ahead of time as the Autumn Internationals return to the city this weekend.

Travellers are being reminded by Cardiff Bus of diversions and road closures which are set to come into force on Saturday 30 October from 13:15 to 20:30 as Wales take on New Zealand at the Principality Stadium.

These diversions will also apply on Saturday 6 November from 13:15 to 20:30, Sunday 14 November from 11:15 to 18:15, and Saturday 20 November from 13:15 to 20:30.

Services running through Cardiff city centre will be affected, and cross city routes will be split. Services that would normally use Tudor Street on match days will start and end on Fitzhamon Embankment while roadworks continue in the area.

In addition to these changes, St Mary Street will not re-open and buses will follow their Saturday night diversions from 20:30.

On match days the Park & Ride East at Pentwyn will be available for shoppers and leisure visits into the city centre, however, it will not be available for event travel and the last bus from the city centre will be at 19:20.

Gareth Stevens, Commercial Director at Cardiff Bus said: “To accommodate road closures and to ensure travel can continue without too much disruption, we will be following our match day diversions, with buses from the west using Fitzhamon Embankment while roadworks continue on Tudor Street.  Our website and app have been updated to reflect the bus stop changes.

“We would advise all our customers to check these route and bus stop changes before travelling on match days to ensure they are fully informed on the diversions in place.”
