Anyone driving to the Nottingham Arena for events in April should allow extra time for their car journey due to essential works taking place near the venue.

Severn Trent works are underway until 22 April to connect a new development to the mains on Belward Street to the west of the venue and emergency repairs are also being carried out to a collapsed BT inspection manhole on Bath Street and Carlton Street to the east until 15 April.

Lane restrictions are in place in both locations to allow these essential works to take place and due to the expected traffic levels the following events will attract to the area, it’s anticipated there will be delays in the surrounding area:

  • 7 April – ELO Concert
  • 8 April – Little Mix
  • 12 April – Five Seconds of Summer, and
  • 17 April – WWE Live

We therefore advise that where possible, people avoid driving directly to the Arena. It is also advised that other motorists use alternative routes where possible on these evenings.

There are many other options which people can use to access the Nottingham Motorpoint Arena such as the tram; the nearest tram stop to the Arena is the “Lace Market” on Fletcher Gate which is just a three minute walk from the venue. Trams run at least every seven minutes until midnight.

In addition, there are seven Park and Ride sites with 5000 spaces, conveniently located close to major roads on the outskirts of the city. Please see our website for further information:

There are also several Nottingham City Transport (NCT) bus services which will drop you right outside the venue and Trent Barton have several bus services which also run past it – visit their websites for timetable information.
