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 less than ten minutes to get to the ground!
To access the stadium, you can make use of the A12 Junction 28.
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. You are now at the stadium.
The postcode of the stadium is CO4 5UP, but you may find that your sat nav system does not acknowledge this postcode at present.
It is recommended to use CO4 5JS, which is the nearby Rapid Electronics factory.
Alternatively, you can come off the A12 at the next junction and take a left onto the A1232. When at the top of this road, bear right back over the A12 towards the traffic lights with the BMW Garage on your left.
Go straight over and up Ipswich Road. At the next set of traffic lights, turn right onto Severalls Lane (signposted just previously for Colchester Cattle Market). Follow this road to its conclusion, where you will pick up signs for the stadium.
Please note that if you are travelling to the stadium for a first team match, then travel restrictions apply around the stadium on a matchday.
