The season is nearly upon us, most people are really excited and some of us are starting to get nervous about travelling into Cardiff.
With the Six Nations set to kick off, the atmosphere is well and truly building in Cardiff.
Wales take on Italy in their first home game on Saturday, February 1 but, before you start thinking about your travel arrangements for the weekend, there are some road closures in place in the city centre on the lead up to the big event that you need to be aware of.
They will be in place to aid essential maintenance work.
On Tuesday, January 28: Scott Road and Park Street will be closed from 8pm until 5.30am.
On Tuesday, January 28 and Wednesday, January 29: Golate & Guildhall will be closed from 8pm until 5.30am.
From Tuesday, January 28 to Thursday, January 30: Westgate Street will be closed from 8pm to 5.30am.
When the closures are in place, r esidential access will be maintained throughout and buses will be maintained until the last bus at midnight.
It's said noise is hoped to be kept to a minimum.
What about the plans for Wales v Italy?
The game will kick off at 2.15pm, and there will be a full city centre road closure in place from 10.45am until 5.15pm to ensure things run as smoothly as possible.
The gates to the stadium will open at 11.30am and all supporters are advised to get into the stadium early to avoid missing kick-off.
From early in the day, Scott Road and Park Street will be closed as a result of the need to prepare Gate 5 and to protect queuing fans.
The following roads will be closed as part of the full city centre road closure.
- Kingsway from its junction with North Road to its junction with Duke Street.
- Cowbridge Road East from its junction with Cathedral Road to its junction with Westgate Street.
- Tudor Street from its junction with Clare Road to its junction with Wood Street (access for residents and traders will be permitted via Fitzhammon Embankment.)
- Plantagenet Street and Beauchamp Street from their junctions with Despenser Place to their junctions with Tudor Street (access for residents and traders will be permitted.)
- The following roads will be closed in their entirety: Duke Street, Castle St, High Street, St Mary Street, Caroline Street, Wood Street, Central Square, Westgate Street, Quay Street, Guildhall Place, Golate, Park Street, Havelock Street and Scott Road.
Station Terrace and Guildford Street from the junction with Newport Road to the junction with Churchill Way will be access for buses only during the times of the road closures. This is to ensure that there is reliable access for buses to the satellite points in Churchill Way.
What about train services?
Network Rail has said there are no planned engineering works for this event.
Passengers are advised to plan their journey in advance at www.nationalrail.co.uk or by calling Travel Line Cymru on 0800 464 0000.
