Marseilles. Infernal traffic, diverted buses: a huge crowd expected at the Vélodrome

Like every summer, the Vélodrome stadium in Marseille completely changes register. After hosting sporting competitions, it became the setting for major concerts.

To inaugurate the season, the rocker Bruce Springsteen will perform there this Saturday evening, to a sold-out audience. Traffic around the stadium may be difficult.

Due to high attendance, caps should form on the axis going from Castellane to the Mazargues obelisk, passing through the Prado roundabout of course, but also the Sainte-Marguerite Dromel district.

In fact, it is not less than 50,000 fans of “The Boss” who should go to the stadium for this completely new concert, scheduled for 7:30 p.m.

Due to the expected high traffic, the RTM network is partially modified.
