Road Closures – Friday December 1st

Roads in the town centre will be closed from 16:30-21:00 on Friday December 1st for the Christmas Light Switch On.

Roads closed include: the Market Place, Bath Street, Cork Street, Catherine Hill, Palmer Street, Stony Street and Eagle Lane.

There is an emergency road closure on Selwood Road due to a burst water main. Current estimates are that the road will be closed until 5 December.

A full map of the road closures for the Christmas light switch on can be found below.


Please take these into account when planning your travel on the evening of the 1st. If you are traveling into town for the Christmas Light Switch On we suggest walking, but if you would prefer to drive we recommend the Market Yard Car Park.

Please note that Cork Street will be closed between 4.30pm and 9pm on Friday 1 December for the town’s Christmas switch-on event. This means there will be no access in and out of the car park between these hours. There will also be a temporary taxi rank at Saxonvale, behind the M&S, to replace the taxi rank on Cork Street.

Buses have also been redirected to avoid this area. Check bus stops for updates and alternative routes, or find a PDF here.
