31 July 2013

Fans travelling to The Lamex on Saturday for the opening League 1 game of the season need to be aware of road closures affecting Junction 7 (Stevenage South) of the A1(M) this weekend.

From 00:00 Friday 2nd August the Junction 7 circulatory and Northbound entry slip and Southbound exit slip will be closed and are expected to remain so until 16:00 on Monday 5th August.

The closure forms part of traffic management plans for the Eastern Electrics Festival, which takes place at Knebworth House from Friday 2nd August to Sunday 4th August. Other road closures include Old Knebworth Lane, Hitchin Lane and Drivers End Lane, all of which are in Knebworth.
