Bristol is reducing congestion whilst increasing growth and prosperity. The city is Britain’s first Cycling City and the only UK city short-listed for the EU green capital award. With an international airport and rail links to the country’s largest cities, Bristol is an attractively positioned city for travelling fans.
The city centre, stadium and the Ashton Court Fan Fest site are ideally located, meaning that getting around this maritime city couldn’t be easier. These three main areas of interest create a proximity triangle whereby travelling fans are no more that 3km from any site. Dedicated shuttle services linking the stadium with Bristol International Airport and an interconnected pedestrian and cycling boulevard route make the stadium and Fan Fest site highly accessible to all.
With major transport schemes planned for the city by 2018 including the £50m core transport investment programme in Bristol coupled with the £1bn proposed government investment in the electrification of the Great Western Main Line between London and Bristol Temple Meads, the city can further boast a unique integrated transport solution as a host city.
