‘Disruption to Residents Unlikely’ With Traffic Arrangements in Place For Wrexham’s UB40 Gig

Wrexham Council are advising residents that ‘no major disruption’ is expected on the roads around the Racecourse when the famed reggae and pop band UB40 play at the stadium next week.

The group, which features original members Ali Campbell, Astro and Mickey Virtue, will take to the stage at the Racecourse on Friday, May 26 as part of their summer Grandslam UK Tour.

In a statement released today, Wrexham Council say that residents are advised that no major disruptions are expected on roads leading to or around the Racecourse on the day of the concert.

Traffic on the Mold Road will be two-way throughout the day, with a section of the Mold Road immediately outside the Racecourse to be closed from 10pm until 11pm, so as to allow the audience to safely leave the stadium and disperse.

Signage will also be placed on neighbouring residential streets to advise that only residents may park on them.

Darren Green, Traffic Management Engineer for Wrexham County Borough Council, said: “We do not expect the UB40 gig to cause any great disruption to residents.

“Attendance at the gig is expected to be about the same size as that of a major match day for Wrexham FC, and a high volume of traffic or visitors parking on neighbouring residential areas is unlikely.

“The only road closure will take place at the end of the gig, and we expect audience members to disperse fairly quickly.

“We would like to thank our partners North Wales Police, Amberon and Wrexham Football Club for their co-operation and assistance throughout organisation for the UB40 gig, and hope all those in attendance have a very enjoyable evening.”
