Following Wolverhampton Council’s decision to bring in a series of measures across the City to reduce the risk of vehicle attacks, Wolves have introduced a number of safety measures.


These new measures follow months of consultation between members of the Safety Advisory Group which has oversight of safety on matchdays at Molineux, and includes representatives from the Club, the Council, emergency services and the Sports Ground Safety Authority.


Permanent security barriers, as agreed by the Council, are due to be installed however Until that time, a series of temporary road closures are to be introduced on a matchday.


The measures will feature road closures at several sites around Molineux as follows:
