    Bridge Car Park post match

    What the hell was that all about after the game last night. Used it many times and never seen anything like it. Would be intrigued to know what time the last cars made it out.

      Ah - didn't know there was an overflow car park for it. Impression we got from those who were getting out of their cars to speak to the stewards was that they tried to empty the car park from the top down so anyone not in the first few rows was just jammed up. Blimey midnight is late considering the game finished around 21.40 - must have been some irate people by that time.

      Finally escaped from the car park around 11pm, shortly after the car horns ceased.
      Some geezer was arguing and being abusive with the stewards at the entrance!!

      As per the above there were probably about 8,000 more people than we've ever had at an evening match.

      Before the game Mill Road was nuts.

      The A27/23 junction was log jammed.
      The sign for M/R being full was up but the other side of the tunnel.
      So people had to drive in before finding out they couldn't park.
      The buses couldn't get through.
      It took over an hour to get from Mill Road to the stadium.


      I wonder if the train strike P/R that was at the stables in Poynings would go some way to relieve the pressure at the junction.

      Only comparable one I've come across is Ipswich over the Christmas period last year. There was no public transport and a 28,000ish crowd. Then it took me half an hour to get from the top to the bottom of Coldean Lane and by the time I got under the railway bridge both Bridge and overflow in BACA were full. Stewards told us to park on the access road which was great for leaving which took all of five minutes, making up for being ten minutes late in the first place.

      Last night both Bridge and BACA were full which means they filter both to begin with thus slowing down the exit from the Bridge. They'll let ten to fifteen cars out at a time but these are replaced by those pushing out from the eastern and central sides before anything moves from the far end or from the bottom. Took me about 45 minutes to get out last night, but thirty of those were sitting in the car with the engine off waiting for the spaces to open up. Patience is a virtue.
