During Victorious there will be a number of road closures across Southsea lasting until Tuesday in some places.

Some residential roads surrounding the festival site will be closed to through traffic from 10.30pm to midnight for the three day period. Access will be for residents only, who will still be able to use their cars during this time.

To ensure the safety of festival-goers as they leave the event, Duisburg Way, Clarence Parade, Avenue de Caen and Palmerston Road will be closed between 10.30pm until midnight on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. Clarendon Road, Grove Road South and Portland Road will operate a one way system and will be open for buses and taxis only. Roads will reopen as soon as possible after crowds have dispersed.

Residents planning to visit the seafront over the bank holiday weekend, but not planning on going to Victorious are advised to plan their journey, if possible, by using alternatives to the car and avoiding peak times.

The Pyramids and D-Day car parks will be closed during the festival weekend.
