With the concert taking place on a normal working day for the city, it is anticipated the road traffic network around the stadium will be busy, as will public transport - so to help your journey run smoothly it's worth planning ahead and leaving extra time to travel.
Bus Travel - Bus Services will be strengthened to increase passenger capacity to the north and south of the stadium to cater for the additional passengers at the end of the concert. Detailed maps showing where to catch buses after the concert will be available on www.lothianbuses.com the week prior to the concert
Tram Travel – Edinburgh Tram will be operating a full service from Murrayfield Stadium tram stop to the city centre and also to Ingliston Park & Ride and Edinburgh Airport both before and after the concert.
Park & Ride - Edinburgh’s Park & Ride sites at Ingliston and Hermiston are both conveniently located for Murrayfield. From Ingliston a frequent Tram service will be provided to Murrayfield Stadium, in addition bus service X12 will also operate to Murrayfield Stadium. From Hermiston Park & Ride additional service X25 will operate to Murrayfield and regular bus service 25 will take you to Gorgie Road (a short walk to Murrayfield). Details of buses will be available on www.lothianbuses.com the week prior to the concert. With frequent bus and tram services both of these Park & Ride sites are great venues to drop off/pick up your friends or relatives.
Coach Travel – Coach and mini bus parking is available in Russell Road and McLeod Street. Please note there is a low over bridge in Russell Road which double decker coaches will not be able to pass under. Please follow steward's instructions when parking at these locations. Coaches should not be parked in any other streets around the stadium.
Travel by foot – Roads will, in the main, remain open to traffic at all times and as such we would ask you to take care when leaving the stadium and keep to the footpaths.
Rail Travel – Scotrail
We'll run longer trains on many Haymarket routes before and after the event
There'll also be an enhanced service on key routes in the evening to help get you home, if travelling by train make your way without delay to Haymarket after the concert.
With 50,000 fans expected at the gig, trains and stations will be busy so it's worth buying your rail ticket in advance.
Consider aiming to arrive at Murrayfield when doors open at 4pm, to avoid the busiest travel times. Remember, many commuters will be travelling home from about 4 to 6pm.
Queuing systems may be in place at key stations, where staff will help safely guide you to your next available train.
Please follow instructions of the additional customer service staff we'll have on the ground. They're there to help your day run smoothly.
Car Travel – It should be noted there is no parking provision for private vehicles within the grounds of Murrayfield Stadium. Several streets in the immediate environs of the stadium will be subject to parking restrictions to ensure the free flow of traffic in and around the stadium. On-street parking will as a result be very limited and we would advise that if you have to travel by car that you park a sensible walking distance from the stadium.
Drop Off/Pick Up – Please note Roseburn Street to the west of the stadium will be closed for the majority of the day. You will not be able to drop off or pick up passengers from this street. Similarly, waiting restrictions will be in place on the A8 Corstorphine Road preventing vehicles from stopping to ensure the free flow of traffic on this main traffic corridor. If you have to drop off and pick up passengers then please arrange a suitable meeting point outside parking restrictions (detailed on the plan below), as congested roads around the stadium may prevent access to agreed locations closer to the stadium. Please allow yourself sufficient time for this to avoid being late on arrival. The Park & Ride sites at Ingliston and Hermiston are great venues to drop off/pick up your friends or relatives.
Full details of all the road closures and parking restrictions can be found on the plan below.
