“Road closures and the number of spectators expected for The Queen’s visit may mean some public transport journeys and walks to public transport stops take longer than usual.”

Visitors are urged to use the 5,000 parking spaces at Meadowhall and use the bus, tram or train.

Enhanced tram service will be in place with extra journeys.

Due to road closures, services around the Cathedral will be subject to changes and some disruption from the start of service until 3pm.

Those that need to travel should check for changes to their regular journey or route in advance. City Centre stop changes will also be posted on all affected stops.
