NATO Summit 2014 - South Wales
The Celtic Manor Resort near Newport in South Wales will host the largest gathering of international leaders ever to take place in Britain during the NATO summit from 1–7 September.
There will be considerable security restrictions around the venues. These, together with the associated programme of road closures in the areas may mean there will be some impact on delivery and collection services during this period.
Currently the known postcodes directly impacted by the summit are; CF10, CF11, CF24, NP10, NP18, NP19 and NP20
On Friday night, vehicles carrying mail due to travel on the flight from East Midlands-Edinburgh arrived too late to connect with this flight due to road works on the M5. All mail was forwarded via the Royal Mail road network. As a result of this a small amount of mail posted on Friday in parts of the South West of England and Wales for delivery in parts of Central and Southern Scotland on Saturday is likely to arrive later than planned.
There were some late arrivals to services on the Royal Mail road network on Friday night, an overview is provided below along with the impact on these services.
Cardiff Mail Centre-National Distribution Centre: A small amount of mail posted in the CF, LD and NP postcode areas on Friday for delivery on Saturday to the CB, PE, DN, HU, LN and S postcode areas may have been delayed.
Manchester Mail Centre-National Distribution Centre: A small amount of mail posted in the BL, M, OL and SK postcode areas on Friday for delivery on Saturday to parts of the South East of England and London may have been delayed.
