A range of temporary road changes will ensure that tens of thousands of people can enjoy this year’s Wales Airshow safely.

The free-entry two-day event is due to take place on July 6 and 7 with a series of world-class displays over Swansea Bay.

Whilst many people will travel to the event by car, organisers Swansea Council are encouraging visitors to walk, cycle or take the train or bus to the event with Airshow travel partners GWR, First Cymru and Transport for Wales.

Temporary road changes will include seafront sections of Oystermouth Road and Mumbles Road, a number of roads in Sandfields plus Pantycelyn Road, Townhill. Diversions will be signposted.

Swansea Prom, from the Civic Centre to Sketty Lane, will be not be accessible to cyclists from 7am July 4 to 11pm July 9.

Emergency access will be maintained and access to the Marina, Singleton Hospital and Swansea University will remain. Directly affected businesses and organisations are being notified.

Arrangements are in place for spectator parking and access, with facilities such as park and ride in place.

Council head of cultural services Tracey McNulty said: “Safety is paramount and we thank local people for their understanding. It’s important for people to plan ahead and to familiarise themselves with the changes.”
