ROAD CLOSURES IN PLACE FOR PRESTON GAME

5 April 2015

With a large crowd expected for the Easter Monday Bank Holiday Sky Bet League 1 home fixture against Preston North End, Bradford City can confirm that road closures will be in place for the game.


With the game scheduled to kick off at 3:00pm, the road closures will be in place from 1:00pm until 5.30pm on Monday (6 April 2015).


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 spectator 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.


With this in mind, 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 appeal for supporters to arrive as early as possible at the stadium.  


A large contingent of supporters from Preston North End is expected and this will restrict the number of turnstiles available to home supporters for the Northern Commercials Stand on Midland Road.


Supporters are therefore asked to be in their seats by 2.30pm to avoid any congestion at the turnstiles as kick-off approaches.


Finally, the Club would remind supporters of the post-match World Record attempt for the biggest assembly of people wearing flat caps.  


Anyone wishing to take part is asked to remain in their seats at the final whistle to await further instructions.  


As this is an official World Record attempt, the criteria are very tight to achieve the record with the attempt being recorded and monitored by external timekeepers and adjudicators.  


It is anticipated that the record attempt will take approximately 30 minutes to complete.  


For the purpose of the World record attempt, any flat cap can be worn.  The World record attempt is, of course, part of the commemoration and fundraising efforts for the 30th anniversary of the Bradford City Fire Disaster.
