Wales v Samoa Travel Advice

Wales entertain Samoa on Friday, November 13 in the second of four Autumn International Rugby Tests.

Around 55,000 people are expected at the Millennium Stadium for the match, which kicks off at 7.30pm, and people travelling to Cardiff are advised to plan their journey in advance. Drivers are also advised to allow extra time for their journey into Cardiff as widening works on the M4 may cause congestion at the busiest times.

The best way to travel to Cardiff is by car share or by using park and ride.

The park and ride site at the Cardiff City stadium at Leckwith (YELLOW CAR PARK) can be accessed from J33 of the M4. The car park will open and have a staff presence from 2.30pm, with the first bus at 2.30pm. The last bus will leave the pick-up points at 11pm, with the car park closing at 11.30pm.

The drop off point for Leckwith is on Tresillian Way north, at the rear of the railway station. Pick-up after the game will be at two locations in Callaghan Square - Callaghan Square north in the lay-by next to Eversheds and Tresillian Way north, at rear of railway station.

The park and ride service costs £5 per car which includes the bus. The services are accessible for the disabled, people with movement difficulties and wheelchair users, with dedicated parking next to the bus pick-up. Low floor buses and raised kerbs at both pick up and drop off points will also be in use.

Coach parking will be provided off Sophia Close where there are dedicated coach parking areas with driver facilities. The cost is £5 per coach.

There will be a full road closure from 6pm to 11pm.

  • Between 6pm and 11pm Kingsway from its junction with North Rd/Boulevard de Nantes to its junction with Duke Street.
