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.
Visiting fans arriving by train to Colchester Station are able to take advantage of our shuttle bus service, which costs just £2.50 for a return journey.
Upon arrival at Colchester Station, fans should turn left out of Colchester Station and hop on the shuttle buses. The shuttle bus starts at 1pm on a Saturday matchday (6pm midweek) and takes just ten minutes to get to the ground!
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.
