In addition to these changes, Station Terrace will be open to buses only, and general traffic will be diverted via Fitzalan Place.The bus stops towards the city centre outside Cardiff Royal Infirmary on Newport Road will not be in use as a result.

Gareth Stevens, Operations and Commercial Director at Cardiff Bus said: “To accommodate road closures and to ensure travel can continue without too much disruption, we’ve introduced diversions in the city centre when Wales’ Six Nations matches are played at home here in Cardiff.

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