Travel and transport information for Take That's Swansea concert

Travel arrangements for Take That's major concert at the Liberty Stadium have been finalised.

Take That

As part of the band's Wonderland Live 2017 tour, Take That will play to an audience of about 32,000 at the stadium on the evening of Wednesday June 14 - that's about 10,000 more people than the Lionel Richie concert last summer.

To accommodate concert-goers and make sure the event is as safe as possible, Swansea Council, along with other partners, has been contracted by the stadium to put a number of car parking, taxi, road closure and drop-off/pick-up point arrangements in place.

Parking in the stadium on the night will be for pre-booked permit holders only. For all other motorists, car parking will be available at the Landore park and walk site from 3pm, the Fabian Way park and ride from 3pm, land near Morrisons and Swansea Tennis Centre from 3pm, Cwm Level playing fields from 1pm, Pentrehafod Comprehensive School from 4pm, and the Lyte Ladders car park from 4pm.  A number of disabled car parking spaces are available at all these car parks, but not at the stadium.

Event gates open from 4pm, with stadium doors opening from 5pm. 

All car parks will close one hour after the concert finishes.

From 3pm, a small road closure will be in place during the build-up to the concert, with Brunel Way closed between its junction with Normandy Road and the A4217.

After the concert, the A4067 dual carriageway opposite the stadium will be closed for at least an hour, although access to Neath Road for taxis and buses will be maintained.

It's recommended people travelling by taxi to and from the concert pre-book their taxis in advance. Due to the road closures, it's suggested taxi passengers request their taxi drops them off and picks them up from Neath Road. 

A temporary taxi rank for black cabs will also be located on Neath Road after the concert finishes.

Other motorists dropping-off or picking-up concert-goers are asked to use the car park on land close to Morrisons and Swansea Tennis Centre, where an area will be set aside.

A Swansea Council spokesperson said: "Take That are one of the most popular bands in the UK, so their concert at the Liberty Stadium is a major coup for Swansea. 

"This is a huge event for music lovers and the city as a whole, with an audience of 32,000 people due at the stadium to enjoy a world class concert.

"We want all concert-goers to have as enjoyable and safe an experience as possible, so we'd urge anyone going along to the stadium on the evening to follow the advice that's now been made available. 

"As well as details of road closures, taxi information, drop-off points, pick-up points and car parking options, our Enjoy Swansea Bay website has also been updated with a range of other tips to help concert-goers. We'd urge local residents to refer to this information in order to determine how this may affect their travel and access arrangements on the night.

"The road closures mean a number of well-signed diversions will be in place, but we'll do all we can to minimise disruption by lifting the road closures as soon as it's safe to do so."

Swansea Council is sending out letters later this week to residents and businesses in the immediate area of the stadium to update them on the travel and access arrangements.

Other information now available here includes advice for concert-goers heading to the stadium or Swansea by bus or train. The costs of car parks for the concert are also included as part of this information, as well as the chance to buy parking tickets in advance.
