Supporters travelling by car to Saturday’s game at Northampton should note that there will be a reduction in the number of available parking spaces close to the ground.
This is due to the local rugby club also being in action, coupled with the fact that part of the North Car Park has been hired out for a funfair. Supporters are advised to arrive early and allow extra time for parking.
At each home game this season, Northampton Saints Rugby Club have a traffic management plan in place to try and ease the delays experienced by supporters after a game.
With the Saints at home with a 3pm kick off on Saturday, this means their plan will be in operation as supporters leave the game this weekend. As part of the plan, both lanes on Edgar Mobbs Way will both run in an outbound direction up to the Walter Tull roundabout.
Therefore, when leaving Sixfields, those supporters parked in the South Gravel Car Park on Saturday MUST turn left at the Walter Tull roundabout when leaving.
Those supporters parked in the West VIP Car Park MUST turn right when leaving.
Those supporters parked in the disabled area MUST turn right on to Edgar Mobbs Way when leaving.
Supporters parked at the North end of Sixfields MUST leave the complex via the Weedon Road.
“We would like to thank all supporters for their co-operation which we hope will help keep delays to a minimum,” said Northampton Town spokesman.
