Both fans and residents can expect road closures and increased traffic two hours before and one hour after matches.

Kick off for Thursday’s match, Northern Ireland v Norway, is at 8pm while the Northern Ireland v Austria fixture on Monday will begin at 5pm.

For both matches the following roads are closed:

  • Northam Road

  • Rochester St (aside from disabled parking bays)

  • Victoria Street

  • Britannia Road

  • Granville Street (open to cyclists)

  • Standford Street (open to cyclists)

Albert Road North, Anglesea Terrace, Paget Street, Chapel Road and Marine Parade can't be used for waiting and loading.

  • Rochester Street

  • Wilson Street

  • Marine Parade (open to cyclists)
