What are the road closure times?

Road closures come in to effect two hours prior to kick-off. Anyone with a valid parking hanger will be able to access the Stadium via Benwell Road and Queensland Road up until one hour prior to kick-off. No vehicles can access the Stadium within the one hour prior to kick-off. This is enforced by the Police and any vehicles that arrive after this deadline will be held at the road block until approximately 15 minutes after kick-off. Vehicles will be able to exit the Stadium during the match up until 15 minutes prior to final whistle, at which point the car park will then close again. The roads re-open approximately one hour after the final whistle.
