Fans are advised that special traffic arrangements will be in force for the FA Cup third-round tie against Manchester United on Sunday.
At the request of Greater Manchester Police, Ashton New Road will be closed to traffic after the match for longer than normal between Councillor Street and Alan Turing Way.
As a result, supporters parked in car parks 6A, 6B or perimeter bays will be asked to exit via an alternative route as detailed below. All vehicles are advised to enter via their usual gate.
• Cars parked in perimeter bays 30-55 and N29-N56 will be directed to exit via East car park onto Alan Turing Way.
• Cars parked in 6A/B, perimeter bays 1-29 and N1-N28 will exit via gate 11 and be directed right into Rowsley Street.
Supporters leaving via Rowsley Street are advised to make their way to Bradford Road via either New Viaduct Street or Philips Park Road and Cambrian Street, depending on direction of travel.
Alternatively, supporters may access Ashton New Road heading towards Great Ancoats Street via Phillips Park Road and Hillkirk Street.
