The Order is required because of the likelihood of danger to the public due to serious traffic congestion which is likely to occur in connection with an event being held at the Stadium of Light on 22nd May 2024 namely the Bruce Springsteen Concert. The provisions of the Order come into force at 00:01 a.m. on 22nd May 2024 and will cease to have effect at 02.00 a.m. on 23rd May 2024. The prohibitions shall apply only at such times and to such extent as may from time to time be indicated by the display of traffic signs. During the closure of the roads on the Sheepfolds Industrial Estate area, access will be maintained by a permit system for workers who operate from the Industrial Estate. Permit holders will be allowed entry and egress during normal opening hours via Sheepfolds North. Patrons and visitors to the Sheepfolds area will be vetted by officers staffing the road closures, only allowing genuine visitors to the business premises and preventing concert goers from parking there. Residents access for Howard Street and Rosebery Street will be maintained at all times. Diversion routes will be signed on the highway network.
