Car Parking

All Rhondda Cynon Taf Council car parks will be open as normal throughout Ponty’s Big Weekend. Disabled car parking will be available.

The most convenient spaces for those who have difficulty walking or require a wheelchair are situated at Gas Road Car Park (25 spaces) and Berw Road multi-story (16 spaces).

Please be aware that part of the Goods Yard Car Park is privately owned and those parking bays operate 24 hour charges, 7 days a week.

For more information on the locations of these car parks, please follow the ‘traffic management’ link below.

Drop Off / Pick Up

There will be no drop-off points outside Ynysangharad War Memorial Park on Bridge Street. Also Taff Street will be closed from 11am until 10.30pm in the interest of road safety.

Motorists can use the two main car parks in Pontypridd to drop off and pick up those attending the concerts.

If travelling from the South A470 or the Valleys, head for the Sardis Road car park. Visitors from the North A470 should head for the Goods Yard car park.
A temporary one-way system is in place on the Victoria Bridge which crosses the River Taff next to Pontypridd’s iconic William Edwards Bridge

Visitors are also advised that there is an allocated pick-up point for concert-goers at the B&Q car park, just off the A470 roundabout.

Please Note: The B & Q customer car park is not a Rhondda Cynon Taf Council car park. It has two-hour limit and motorists will be fined £60 if they exceed the time restriction. The store also operates a two-hour non-return policy.
