On matchdays, due to high traffic levels, Walton Breck Road will close 90 minutes before the match kicks off. The road will re-open*, once the match is under way, but will again close 20 minutes before the final whistle, and remain closed for up to 45 minutes after the game has finished. After this time, services will return to their normal routes.
When Everton and Liverpool F.C. play games at Goodison or Anfield, the following diversion applies to routes 68, 68A and 68E from one hour before kick-off. The road will re-open*, once the match is under way, but will again close 15 minutes before the final whistle and remain closed for up to 30 minutes after the game has finished. After this time, services will return to their normal routes.
*Buses will pass through the area along normal routes during this time.
The local residents Road Closure Access Pass is in operation for the 2018/19 season. The pass will ensure you have quick access to and from your home during the road closure periods.
We are kindly asking pass holders to renew their pass for the 2018/19 season by exchanging their existing pass at the Anfield Ticket Office.
Passes are available to those residents who live within the road closure area.

Residents are reminded that the pass does not replace the resident and visitor parking permit scheme issued by Liverpool City Council. Anfield residents should continue to clearly display these in their vehicles on a matchday. Please note that our Stadium Traffic Management Team will only allow access when it is safe to do so (please refer to FAQs).

Residents without parking permits travelling to and from their homes on a matchday by taxi will be permitted access by our Stadium Traffic Management team.
