What lets Bridgend down is lack of parking, combined with bus services finishing before the game.
I assume they will have to do something about a car park or park and ride.


There are car parks dotted around Bridgend.

One literally over the road, one just outside the Club door, a Pub carpark within 2 minutes walk, a small industrial estate 5 minutes walk.

A carpark some 5 minutes walk downriver and another 7 minutes down river, Hospital carparks 10 minutes walk away.

Biggish car parks on the Shopping Mall alongside the M4 - they're 15 minutes walk away ....

Not suitable if you're not a Bridgend lad, they're tough to find if you're looking for a big one, the one alongside the M4 in particular.

Just outside the town centre are a series of trading estates - about 4 or 5 miles of road parking out by Coychurch.

I take your point but you want to just turn up and find somewhere to park. Or with Cardiff Blues, know you cab get a train. Having to make an effort to get there is part of the problem.


Could easily be solved with a park and ride, and the bus companies should run until a sensible time too

Two railway stations in Bridgend.

One in the centre of town and the other a mile away towards the M4.

Yeh, but my closest is 6 miles and about 10 parking spots there

Ain't life a bitch, especially away from a well served town.

That's kind of the point though isn't it? If you don't have a big local population, you need to make it very easy for travelling fans.

No problem at all, I just spend my money somewhere more convenient. I'm not complaining, or trying to stay afloat :thefinger:



Oh yes, my closest rail stop is---- Bridgend.
