Full list of road closures ahead of Taylor Swift’s concerts in Edinburgh

Taylor Swift will play not one, not two, but three gigs in Edinburgh this week. And, as you'd expect, these huge sell-out events are going to cause a fair bit of disruption to traffic.

The US superstar will perform to thousands of fans at Scottish Gas Murrayfield on Friday 7, Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 June. As happens during all big events in the city, Edinburgh will be extremely busy when the concerts take place – especially the area around the stadium.
