NATO Traffic updates How to avoid congestion!

Traffic woes are continuing in south Wales as Newport is set to hold the 2014 Nato Summit, with events being held in Cardiff too.

World leaders will attend the Celtic Manor Resort in Newport over September 4 and 5, and the gathering is expected to cause major congestion across the region.

How can I avoid the traffic in Cardiff city centre?

Cardiff council has produced an alternative route map around the city centre where road closures are shown by a red line.

The blue line shows the alternate route around the city centre to avoid this area of congestion.

The arrows do not imply a one way system and the network can be used clockwise or anti-clockwise.

The route, a circle around the fence that stretches as far as Gabalfa, Pontcanna and Grangetown, starts at the Gabalfa Roundabout.

As you travel down North Road, motorists are advised to continue on to Colum Road and travel down through the Boulevard De Nantes until Dumfries Place.

Drivers should then turn right on Fitzalan Place following it around to Adam Street and then Bute Terrace. They should then travel onto Heol Penarth before turning right on Clare Road.

Motorists are advised to follow Clare Road until it becomes Cathedral Road and then continue on Penhill Road.

From Penhill Road drivers should turn right onto Cardiff Road and then right on Western Avenue.

Motorists travelling into the city through Pontcanna and Canton should reverse the diversion direction.
