Please note when planning your journey to the arena that details of the planned refurbishment work on the A1 Allerdene Bridge have been confirmed by Highways Agency.
Preliminary works will take place on the bridge overnight from 18 - 24 July between 8pm and 6am. The works will require lane closures on both carriageways of the A1 between Kingsway (Team Valley) and Eighton Lodge (Angel), and on one night there will be a full closure of the northbound carriageway. This work is needed to open a crossover in the central reserve and install speed cameras to enable traffic to run in contraflow during the main works.
There may be slight delays to drivers during this time so please plan your journey and leave enough time to ensure you don't miss any of this fantastic show.
