Wales Airshow once again returns to Swansea Bay this summer. We are writing to advise you of the traffic arrangements that are being put in place for this year’s show. WALES AIRSHOW 2023 will take place on the 1st & 2nd of July. The event will take place from 10 am - 6.00 pm on both days. A host of exciting attractions are lined up including a comprehensive range of air displays including big favourites The Red Arrows, the Typhoon, and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. Our Armed Forces will be among a great variety of exhibitors bringing ground displays, personnel and equipment to the event. As with previous year's shows, spectator safety remains a key priority and to ensure this a section of Oystermouth Road will be closed for the weekend. The space this creates enables a large number of extra ground displays and creates a visitor area where people can move safely without the risk of traffic. This year’s road closures will be as follows:-
Phase 1 12noon Friday 30th June - 5 am Saturday 1st July Oystermouth Road / Mumbles Road will be closed in a Westbound direction only (from the junction of West Way to Brynmill Lane)
Phase 2 5am Saturday 1st July – 5am Monday 3rd July Oystermouth Road / Mumbles Road will be closed in both directions. (from the junction of West Way to Sketty Lane). Access to the Marina (via Dunvant place), Singleton Boating Lake and Swansea University will be maintained and the City Centre will remain open for business as usual. Access for emergency services remains in place throughout.
