Fans making their way to Anfield can expect to see some significant changes around Anfield stadium as part of the regeneration plan for the area.
The current work and erection of construction hoardings adjacent to the Stadium means that pedestrian access via Rockfield Road, Back Rockfield Road and Lothair Road will no longer be accessible by foot or vehicle. Fans will be rerouted via Anfield Road and Walton Breck Road.
Fans are asked to keep to the designated pedestrian access roads and allow extra time to get to the stadium.
New signage will be positioned around the stadium to direct fans and additional stewards and police officers will be present on matchdays to help reroute pedestrians and vehicles to minimise disruption.
The routine road closures, Walton Breck Road (10 minutes before kick-off) Anfield Road (45 minutes before kick-off) will remain in place and it is advised that residents with parking permits should continue to clearly display them in their vehicles to allow direct access during matchdays.
Those residents without parking permits travelling to and from their homes on a matchday by taxi are advised to carry some ID which displays their name and address details to show to the matchday stewards, ensuring access is permitted.
There will be no changes to car parking access and facilities, taxi drop off points or key bus services including Merseytravel’s Soccer Bus and 917 services.
All fans area asked to plan their route to the stadium in advance of the fixture at Anfield on August 10 and to allow extra time for their journey. All fans are advised to be at the stadium 30 minutes before kick-off.
