How do I get to the ground?

The stadium is located alongside the A12 at Junction 28.

The ground itself has its own carpark but this must be pre-booked with the club here at a cost of £7.00.
The immediate area around the JobServe Community Stadium is under a Parking Exclusion Zone on match days. This covers existing Clearways as well as nearby residential areas. These are patrolled on match days so please watch out of signs.
Colchester Park and Ride on Cuckoo Farm Way off junction 28 of the A12 (CO4 5JA) is a 5 minute walk away and also has parking.

When do turnstiles open?
Turnstiles will open at 6.30pm.
What is the nearest train station to the stadium and what is the approximate distance and walking time?
The nearest train station is the Colchester North Station or you have Colchester Station. This is a good 40-minute walk away and I’m told that taxis can be hard to come by.
