The wording in the key of the map, matches the signs you will see during Games time, but this is what they really mean for you:
Road Closed: For safety and security reasons, some sections of roads will be closed completely, meaning no vehicle access will be able to pass.
No Stopping: Vehicles must not stop on the road to wait, load, unload or board and alight passengers.
Permit Access Only: Protected by a vehicle permit checkpoint (VPC), only permit holders displaying the permit on their windscreen will be allowed to pass. These permits will be free and issued by your Local Authority, Birmingham City Council.
Controlled Parking: To protect residential roads from spectator parking during events; waiting, loading and parking restrictions will be in place. This means if you live on a controlled parking road you will need a permit to park on the road. These permits will be free and will be issued by your Local Authority, Birmingham City Council. You will need to display this permit on your windscreen when parking on-street to avoid a fine.
Venue Load Zone: Drop off and pick up points for dedicated Games buses.
Vehicle Permit Checkpoint: You will need to show a permit to drive past a vehicle permit checkpoint (VPC) and access the road.
