With Penarth Esplanade and Beach Road closed off to traffic for Carnival Day many motorists attempting to park in the area have found there are cones restricting parking in adjoining roads as well .
Drivers attempting to reach addresses on the Esplanade were having to identify themselves to stewards and were being escorted to their destinations.
Additional temporary parking restrictions are also in force this morning on Bridgeman Road, Marine Parade, Holmesdale Place and Plymouth Road
In most cases parking is restricted to one side of the road with traffic cones being placed along the opposite.
Some residents in narrow Plymouth Road have parked their cars on the pavement in order to comply with the restrictions.
The coned off areas will remain restricted until this evening
