Safety signs have been installed around Manchester's Old Trafford football and cricket stadia.

The decision comes after council concerns over excessive congestion at the sites.

Eight changeable safety signs have been deployed, meaning that when key events are taking place, such as Premier League matches or concerts, the signs will display information for motorists specific to these happenings. Drivers will benefit from the advance notice and can revise travel times accordingly.

When major events aren’t occurring, the safety signs will offer general safety messages in conjunction with Trafford Council's Don’t Drive Tired campaign.

Five of the warning signs, funding for which has come from the Gorse Hill Partnership, are already in use with the remainder due to be deployed soon.
Alan Mitchell, executive councillor, said: "The council is committed to easing congestion on Trafford's roads as well as making sure they are as safe as possible. Motorists travelling in the area Old Trafford football and cricket stadiums will now have advance knowledge of when major events are taking place and will be able to plan their journeys accordingly."

A spokesperson for Manchester United said the club welcomed the move.

The team's Old Trafford stadium has a capacity of 75,000.
