Road Closure Information For Leeds Game

Fans attending tomorrow night’s fixture with Leeds United at Molineux are reminded that there are additional road closures in place in Wolverhampton City Centre to those already in place for the matchday.

The usual matchday closures (CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS) will be in place at the normal times in advance of the 7.45pm kick off.

But there are also two major events taking place in the City Centre which will prompt additional closures put in place by the City of Wolverhampton Council.

The Christmas lights are being switched on in the City Centre including a firework display, and comedian Sean Lock is performing at the Civic Hall.

The usual road closures for vehicles will be in place for the Christmas lights switch-on and firework display between 11am and 9pm: 

  • Lichfield Street (closed in both directions between Princess Street and Queen Square)


  • Queen Square (closed entire length)


  • Darlington Street (closed in an eastern direction between Waterloo Road and Queen Square)


  • Red Lion Street/Paternoster Row/Mitre Fold/North Street/Corporation Street/Exchange Street/Cheapside/Lich Gates (closed entire length)


  • Dudley Street (closed between King Street and Queen Square)


In line with the Civic Hall's new security measures, and to facilitate the Christmas lights switch-on, Red Lion Street, Paternoster Row, Mitre Fold, North Street and Corporation Street will be closed from 11am to 11.30pm.

Access in and out of the Civic Centre car park on this day will be via Wulfruna Street ONLY.

Due to the Blue Badge disabled bays being unavailable on Exchange Street and Cheapside, additional Blue Badge disabled bays will be provided in the Civic Centre car park on the night.

The city council is providing free car parking for all on the School Street car park and Market car park (accessed from Peel Street) from 2pm; and the Mander Centre car park is offering free parking from 4pm.

For other alternative council car parks in the city centre please visit Parking and roads.

With a bumper crowd expected at Molineux, fans are encouraged to arrive as early as possible to avoid congestion.
