Car park charges at York Stadium set to double

Parking at York Stadium is set to become very expensive in the near future, a recent news report in the local media has been able to confirm.

City of York Council is planning to put the price of the car park up from £5 to £10 for motorists who walk away from their vehicle without getting on the bus to town.

Plans for the stadium show that parking for fans driving to a match will be on the Park&Ride and, on match days, all free parking at the neighbouring Vangarde Shopping Park will be limited to two hours.

Planning documents say on match days 400 spaces will be available for visitors to the 8,000-capacity stadium, with 447 remaining for the Park&Ride facility. There will also be a coach drop-off point, disabled parking and bicycle spaces.

Car Park Barriers & Turnstiles – the go-to company for reliable and affordable car park barriers and restrictions solutions

We can provide reliable and affordable access restriction barriers for any number of car parks.

Our automatic barriers can work in any weather and are able to immediately recognise authorised personnel. They are supplied complete and ready to accept power and data connections. The barrier arms are available in several different lengths, in order to suit all road widths and car park sizes.

If you need a barrier arm which is longer than 3m we advise that you also install a support post, in order to keep your lifting system working at full capacity for as long as possible.

We can also offer a range of related extras, such as a folding arm mechanism, an impact release mechanism, and a barrier skirt which stops people being able to duck under the barrier to obtain entrance.

Many elements of our car park barriers can be produced in any classic RAL colour you wish for an extra fee. This is great if you are focused on brand continuity throughout your site, or simply want to make the barriers stand out clearly.
