Pre-match travel advice

19 January 2013

SWINDON Town Football Club have urged supporters to allow plenty of extra time when travelling in to The County Ground for today’s game.

Working with the local authorities, fans coming to the game should take note of the following advice:

- Allow plenty of time for making your journey
- Allow extra time if purchasing tickets at the stadium
- Wear suitable clothing and footwear for the weather conditions, plenty of layers
- Listen to BBC Wiltshire 104.3FM for travel information

Driving advice when roads are icy or slushy:

- It can take ten times longer to stop in icy conditions than on a dry road.  Drive slowly, allowing extra room to slow down and stop
-   Use the highest gear possible to avoid wheel spin
-   Manoeuvre gently, avoiding harsh braking and acceleration
-   To brake on ice or snow without locking your wheels, get into a low gear earlier than normal, allow your speed to fall and use the brake pedal gently
-   If you start to skid, ease off the accelerator but do not brake suddenly
