ROAD CLOSURES IN PLACE FOR BARNSLEY GAME

23 April 2015

With a large crowd expected for this Saturday's(25 April 2015) last home game of the season against Barnsley, Bradford City today announced that road closures will be in place for the game.  


With the game kicking-off at 3:00pm, the road closures will be in place from 1:00pm until 5.30pm.


Midland Road will be closed from its junction with Thorncliffe Road right through to its junction with Cornwall Road.  


The lower section of Holywell Ash Lane will also be closed from its junction with Lupton Street.  Access to the disabled parking spaces in front of Rear Rock Terrace will still be allowed from the Thorncliffe Road closure point.  


Any spectators wishing to park on the car park off Midland Road (an area not operated by Bradford City FC) are asked to access that area from the direction of Hamm Strasse.


The Club would also like to take this opportunity to remind people travelling to the stadium by car to make sure that their car is left secure and that no valuables are on view.  


West Yorkshire Police have done a lot of work this season to reduce car crime in the area during first team matches, but thieves will be aware of the expected high attendance and may target the area.  So, supporters are asked to help themselves and back-up the work of the Police by securing their car and removing or hiding any valuables.


The Club would also make an early appeal for supporters to arrive as early as possible at the stadium.  


A minute’s silence to commemorate the people lost in the Bradford City Fire Disaster and others who have passed away during the last twelve months will be held prior to kick-off.  


In addition, the walk by kit-man John Duckworth will conclude at the stadium and the walkers from Lincoln City and Barnsley will take part in a lap of honour at around 2.20pm.  


Please get to the stadium early to mark their achievement and to be in place for the minute of silent reflection.
