Wales Airshow, Swansea 29 June - 2 July12 Jun 2018 Swansea/Abertawe
|Location:||Oystermouth Road, Swansea|
|Dates:||29 Jun 2018 to 2 Jul 2018|
We are sure you will have witnessed that the Wales Airshow has been a huge success for Swansea and now that it is an annual event, it has outgrown its original site along the promenade. In order to be able to support the increasing numbers of visitors and to allow more space for ground events, there is a need to expand the event onto Oystermouth Road.
As a result, it will be necessary to close a section of Oystermouth Road for the weekend beginning on Friday, June 29, to allow exhibitors to have enough time to set up ahead of the start of the show the following day. Oystermouth Road from its junction with West Way through to Mumbles Road at the junction with Sketty Lane will be closed in both directions from approximately 1000 on Friday, June 29. The road will re-open temporarily from 1500 to approximately 1900 for westbound traffic only using the eastbound section of Oystermouth Road. Once closed at 1900, Oystermouth Road will remain closed until 0600 on Monday, July 2.
During this time, all buses to and from Mumbles, plus services 4, 4A, 8 and 14 and will run via Uplands and will not be able to serve bus stops on the affected section of Oystermouth Road.
All Mumbles services will use the stops on Sketty Lane in both directions and miss out Singleton Hospital and the University.
Service 4 will use hospital as normal from Sketty Lane then return from the University via the hospital and operate via Uplands.
Service 8 will operate into Singleton Hospital and University then return via the Hospital to run via Uplands.
All above services will not pick up or set down passengers between the bus station and Sketty Lane in both directions.
General information on the event is available from the webpage at www.walesairshow.co.uk
We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience that this may cause you and thank you for your cooperation.
Park & Ride - New for 2018
