6 September 2019

A big welcome to our match day sponsors

The Supporters’ Car Park

The weather has been better ... but rain is on the way!

As things stand the car park is OPEN to all supporters, but please keep checking our social media channels for updates.

Disabled parking is available as normal at the north end of the Pioneer Stand, and is for Blue Badge holders only.

Press / media parking is also available as normal.

Remember – access has changed due to new counter-terrorism advice. Both of our Warwick Road car entry points are now closed 30 minutes prior to kick off, with access then diverted to the Stonyeholme Golf Course entrance.

Major Roadworks

As we're sure you've already seen and experienced, the temporary lights have shifted east and are now a few hunded metres further along Warwick Road. 

Roadworks

Greystone Road - directly opposite the eastern entry to Brunton Park - remains partially closed, with the traffic light system now on the bridge over the river.

This is causing long delays for traffic heading in all directions to and from the ground.

Please plan for what could be significant delays into your journey.

For a reminder on the guidelines for supporters using the car parks - with entry and exit restricted to 30 minutes before and 30 minutes after kick off respectively - click HERE.
