One-way systems will be operated in some areas, and the flow of traffic will change direction during the day in order to ease those wishing to exit the Maes. It is imperative that drivers follow the yellow road signs and listen to the advice given in order to ensure that the traffic runs smoothly.
You can also listen to regular traffic reports on the radio.
