The city is likely to be busier than usual during the D-Day 75 events, particularly leading up to the national commemorative event on Wednesday 5 June. However, Portsmouth will be open for business as usual. If you are getting around, please plan your journeys, allow extra time and walk, cycle and use public transport where you can.
For security reasons, there will be road closures and parking restrictions around the national commemorative event on 5 June, which is organised by the Ministry of Defence. The details of road closures and parking restrictions will be included on here as soon as they are confirmed.
Parts of Southsea Common will also be closed, although we will do all we can to keep the restrictions to a minimum. The event site will start to be constructed on 20 May, so you will notice activity from then. Once we have the details of security restrictions confirmed, we will let you know more about which areas of the common will be closed and when. The information will be put here.
