South Carriage Drive will be closed whenever crowds get too large.

    Old Street – From Monday 3 December until early 2019, one lane will be suspended on the south east section of Old Street roundabout for utility investigations.

This is due to a football match between Tottenham and Southampton, kicking off at 20:00. Traffic levels are expected to increase in the area before and after the game.
