Eurovision road closures: What roads will be closed in Liverpool during the contest
Credit: The Guide Liverpool

Of course there will be road closures in Liverpool during Eurovision to ensure we all stay safe – here’s what you need to know.

It’s all happening. Eurovision has arrived in Liverpool with loads of events and attractions around the main Song Contest action set to begin at the M&S Bank Arena.

We’re absolutely buzzing as the stars and the hosts head into town, and the fun begins.

There does have to be a bit of planning and organisation to make sure everyone’s safe and to enable the events to go ahead, which means a few road closures.

The big advice from us is to get the train with Merseyrail. There are timetable and station changes so please check before you travel. Visit the website HERE.

And here are the ones we know so far:
