Saints fans have been warned of new parking changes, ahead of the visit of Man United
12:28pm Friday 31st August 2012 in News
Saints fans are being warned of parking chaos ahead of the club’s clash with Manchester United this weekend.
Council chiefs have introduced a new traffic management system on the streets surrounding St Mary’s Stadium, which will come into effect this weekend.
New yellow parking signs will be clearly displayed on eight different roads around the stadium, including Brintons Terrace, Chapel Road, Britannia Road and Granville Street, preventiong fans from parking there during the match.
And council bosses warned that anyone caught parking on the roads, between 1pm and 5pm on Sunday, will have their vehicle towed away.
The move is set to affect all motorists, including disabled blue badge holders, who usually park around the stadium.
It means that thousands of fans that are set to flock to the stadium for the visit of Manchester United on Sunday will be forced to find alternative travel or parking arrangements.
