Plan ahead to avoid jams in Nottingham on Armed Forces Day

Nottingham city residents, businesses and commuters are being advised to plan ahead to make the most of the celebrations to mark the Armed Forces Day national event in Nottingham.

Nottingham City Council is working with Nottinghamshire Police and local transport teams ahead of the event, which takes place on Saturday June 29 in the City Centre and Victoria Embankment.

Advice on travelling around Nottingham this Saturday:

  • Familiarise yourself with road closures and changes to normal services that may affect you
  • Allow extra time on your journey because of special traffic management measures and large crowds
  • If travelling for other reasons on the day, explore alternative transport options such as walking and cycling

Our key aim is to make sure that it is safe for people to enjoy what promises to be a spectacular event.

We are doing what we can to minimise disruption to residents and businesses and would like to thank everyone for their cooperation and understanding at this time.

– Councillor Jane Urquhart, Nottingham City Council’s Portfolio Holder for Planning and Transportation

The Armed Forces Day parade will be passing from Nottingham Castle to the Old Market Square, and then on through the city up to St Mary’s Church from 10:50am – 12:30pm.
