The supporters coaches will depart Highbury at 7.30am.
From the North - A14 from Huntingdon, then turn east along the A14 dual carriage way:
Then exit the A14 at the fourth junction (situated east of Cambridge), up the slip road to the roundabout (signposted Stow-Cum-Quy). Turn right onto the A1303, and return westwards towards Cambridge. Go straight over the first roundabout, passing Marshall Airport to the left. Go straight over two sets of traffic lights to a roundabout. The Ground's floodlights can be seen from here and McDonald's is on the right.
Turn left onto the ring road. Turn right at the first roundabout (a large Sainsbury's is on the left here), and go along Coldham's Lane. After half a mile, immediately after the traffic lights (at the Greyhound Public House) turn right into Coldham's Road before the railway bridge.
Coaches: Coach operators are asked to assist by observing the following:
Coaches must adhere to the route, and not drive past the front of the ground unless arrangements have been made at least 24 hours prior to a fixture with Cambridgeshire Police and Cambridge United FC to enable any disabled, elderly, and supporters with mobility problems to be dropped off at the main entrance
Coaches should arrive at the parking area by the route directed no earlier than two hours and not later than 3/4 hour before the kick-off.
Coach drivers will be required to turn off the vehicle's engine when the coach is stationary in order to limit noise disturbance and fumes.
Coaches should not stop within 10 miles of Cambridge, nor at any premises where intoxicatings liquor is sold.
Departure should normally be within 30 minutes of the final whistle.
There are regular services to and from Cambridge Railway Station, where taxis are available or the Citibus C3 service runs from the station every ten minutes during the day and at longer intervals in the evenings
To walk from the railway station to the ground could take 25-30 minutes. Walk away from the station along Station Road and take the first right, (Tenison Road). Take the first right again, (Devonshire Road), follow this round to the left, up to the next junction. Turn right - again - onto Mill Road. Walk over the railway bridge, then take the third left, (Sedgewick Street). Follow this road, pass a set of traffic calming barriers, and shops (at this point you are in Cromwell Road) to a T-junction, (Coldham's Lane). Ahead of you should be a large field (Coldham's Common). Go into this field and follow a path under the railway bridge to the away turnstiles.
On-street parking is available close to the ground, but do arrive early as the later you try and park the further you will have to walk to the ground. You are advised to park south west of the stadium, for example, off Coldhams Lane.
