Dropping off can be made along Railway Street. You are advised to collect people from an area away from the Arena as it is likely that you will become involved in heavy traffic.
For many shows the road at the front of the building, Redheugh Bridge Road, will be closed for pedestrian safety and approach should be made via Pottery Lane from the east, or up Shot Factory Lane from Skinnerburn Road next to the river.
