OVO Hydro is conveniently situated for motorists, just off the M8 motorway and with plenty of parking.
Leave the M8 at junction 19 and join the westbound Clydeside Expressway (A814). Westbound on the Expressway (A814) take the cut off signposted SEC East. Turn left at traffic lights and take the right lane to access multi-storey parking. View a map and directions.
