Below is key traffic information for Swans fans travelling to Bournemouth for Saturday's fixture at the Vitality Stadium.
Fans should avoid using the A338 Bournemouth Spur Road between Ashley Heath Roundabout (on the A31) and the Blackwater Junction as it is being rebuilt.
There will be 24/7 traffic management with a contraflow system with a 40mph speed limit in place, enforced by average speed cameras.
Please note, there is no diversion route, so plan your journey to allow extra time and travel outside of peak times.
