V6 Grafton Street will be closed from the A5 roundabout to the V4 Watling Street roundabout. Residents and Business will have access from Granbury Roundabout.
DW Sports users will only be able to access their car park after 11am from the H10 Bletcham Way junction into Asda then via the entrance road into Stadiummk. Exit is via the same route.
Temporary traffic signals will be installed within the area affected by road closures to facilitate traffic control and deal with traffic to the Asda, Ikea and Bramley Road areas.
A shuttle bus service will be operating from near the CMK Station to transport ticket holders to the Stadium.
The measures in place will prevent disruption to the vast majority of visitors to Milton Keynes. The CMK Shopping Centre will be unaffected, though should expect additional footfall throughout the day.
Users of MKOne and the leisure facilities around the stadium footprint should expect managed access to the site which will result in some delays, though these will be reduced as much as possible.
Local residents will retain access to their estates; though will not be able to use the closed roads. The road closures will aid in protecting parking provisions for residents in Beanhill and Netherfield. Parking enforcement will be in operation.
The first rail freight service from the UK to China has arrived.
