Colchester Travel Advice


12:28 4th October 2013

Information for Saturday's game

With Wolves making their first visit to Colchester United's Weston Homes Community Stadium, the U's have the following travel advice for fans coming down by car on Saturday.


The Weston Homes Community Stadium lies immediately adjacent to the A12 that runs through East Anglia, making it easily accessible for fans attending Saturday’s game.


The stadium is on Junction 28, to the north of the town and is the junction after the Stanway/Colchester turn off, heading towards Ipswich.


Fans should note that all stadium parking at the Weston Homes Community Stadium is sold out for the weekend fixture, and there will be no admission without a parking permit. Should you have a permit for the match, please display clearly as you approach the stadium car park for the stewards to see.


Alternative Parking

Please note that Axial Way, which is the road running away from the stadium, is an urban clearway, so any cars parked on this road are liable to receive a parking ticket from the local authorities.


However, local businesses along Axial Way offer some football parking on matchdays and an early arrival should secure a place.


Fans can also park at Colchester Train Station (postcode CO1 1XD) and then make use of the matchday shuttle bus service from nearby Bruff Close (details below).


Shuttle Bus Service

The U’s run a shuttle bus service for each home fixture and this will be running in full on Saturday.


Buses will start running from 1.00pm from Bruff Close, which is behind the Big Yellow Storage Company building as you leave Colchester train station.


Trains from Liverpool Street and Stratford, as well as from Norwich/Ipswich, arrive into Colchester North station.


These buses run on a regular loop right the way through to kick off and return after the game. Travel on the shuttle bus costs £2 for a return ticket and take around 10 minutes to get to the stadium.
