By Car

A12 - JUNCTION 28

December 2010 saw the new junction serving the Weston Homes Community Stadium open to the public.

 

This means that the stadium is now just seconds from the main A12 trunk road that serves East Anglia.

 

From the south (Ipswich bound carriageway)

To access the stadium from the south, turn off at Junction 28, turning right at the first roundabout. Go across the bridge and then go straight over the second roundabout, before turning right into United Way from the third roundabout. You are now at the stadium.

 

From the north (London bound carriageway)

To access the stadium from the north, turn off at Junction 28, turning left at the first roundabout. Turn right into United Way from the second roundabout.

Postcode for Sat Nav is: CO4 5UP

By Train - Important Information


Crewe Alexandra fans who are planning to use the train to attend our away match at Colchester United on 7th February should be aware of impending engineering works on the East Anglia to London Liverpool Street line.


From now until March 22nd, there will be significant works, meaning that the line is closed between Manningtree and Shenfield each weekend.


Maintenance work will see new tracks installed in Colchester, Marks Tey and Witham, and overhead lines replaced at Chelmsford.


Whilst bus services will replace the trains on those weekends, fans should be aware of the impact on journey times.



More details can be found on the Abellio Greater Anglia website.


Colchester United are currently investigating ways in which the impact of these problems could be mitigated by alternative travel options - the official website will be updated as and when anything is confirmed.


Match Day Parking

Matchday Car Park Permits

Please note that there is only limited car parking at the stadium itself, with just under 700 spaces in the main stadium car park. Stadium Parking costs £6.00 and can be booked directly at www.colutickets.com subject to availability. We recommend that fans purchase parking well in advance of the game.

 

Parking Exclusion Zone

Both Colchester United and visiting supporters should be aware that the immediate area around the Weston Homes Community Stadium is subject to a Parking Exclusion Zone on matchdays.

 

Covering both existing Clearways and also nearby residential areas, these roads will be marshalled by Colchester United and Essex Police to prevent parking on roads not permitted under the Stadium Travel Plan.

 

Parking in Colchester

Fans coming by car are able to park in town centre car parks, paying the required fee, before joining up with the Matchday Travel Service.

 

There are numerous town centre car parks, whilst there is also an extensive pay car park at Colchester Train Station.

 

If parking in a town centre car park, visiting fans can buy a ticket for the number 65 bus on Head Street to the train station (a five to ten minute journey), where they can then link up with the shuttle bus service, which is a £2.50 return to the stadium.

 

There are plenty of pubs and restaurants in the town centre and visiting fans may find that getting to the ground in this way is an enjoyable one.
