PRLog - Nov. 17, 2010 - In order to accommodate the Christmas Parade as it travels through Swansea City Centre this Sunday (21 November) a number of road closures will be in effect.

The procession will start from East Burrows Road Car Park, next to the Dylan Thomas Centre, at 5.00pm and make its way to the Guildhall via Wind Street, Castle Bailey Street, College Street, The Kingsway, St Helen’s Road and St Helen’s Crescent finishing at approximately 6.30pm at Guildhall Road North.  

In order to cover any contingencies the roads, with the exception of Guildhall Road North, will be closed on a rolling basis between 4.30pm and 7.00pm as the parade progresses through the city.  Signs indicating the alternative routes will be in place where appropriate.

The following roads are affected:

East Burrows Road - closed both directions from Somerset Place to Cambrian Place
Somerset Place - closed both directions from Quay Parade to East Burrows Road
Ferry Side - closed both directions for its whole length
Adelaide Street - closed both directions from Burrows Place to Somerset Place

Castle Bailey Street - closed both directions for its whole length
Castle Street - closed both directions for its whole length

The Kingsway  - closed from College Street to Dillwyn Street (Westbound bus and taxi lanes) and from Belle Vue Way to St Helen’s Road (Westbound left hand lane only).
St Helens Road - closed both directions from the Kingsway to Guildhall Road South

Frances Jenkins, Swansea Council’s Strategic Manager for Tourism, Marketing and Events, said, “The Christmas Parade always proves popular and helps get people in the mood for Christmas.   Hopefully this year will prove no exception and we are looking forward to large crowds lining the streets.”

“We also hope to keep traffic disruption to a minimum.  This year we have reversed the route which will result in some of the main roads such as the very busy junction at the lower end of Wind Street being closed for less time and reopening more quickly than in previous years.  We apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused.”
