Public transport is also expected to be busier than normal throughout the weekend so, for those relying on it to get around the city, please allow extra time for all journeys.

Whether attending the event or not, Traffic Scotland is urging drivers to make sure they plan their journey in advance by visiting @trafficscotland on Twitter and checking certain website features to avoid delays.

Traffic Scotland said: “Make sure to check your route before you travel by visiting our Current Incidents page.

Live traffic cameras are available on the Traffic Scotland website which allow users to monitor the roads live before a journey begins. Make sure you search by ‘road’ and not ‘region’ to find the most relevant camera for your route.

“Another feature available on the website is the Journey Times tab which allows users to search their routes providing them with delay information which may affect your journey.”
