CHESTER FC is aiming to have a solution in place by the new year to end the problem of gridlocked traffic after home games.
Blues supporters leaving the Exacta Stadium via Bumpers Lane and Sovereign Way can be stuck in queues for up to an hour after the final whistle.
The club, which has an average home league attendance of about 2,400, will meet Cheshire Constabulary and Cheshire West and Chester Council this month to discuss the issue.
Chester are keen to look into the option of having the traffic lights at the bottom of Bumpers Lane switched off for a period after each game and police officers marshalling away the traffic.
The option of opening a second gate for cars to leave the Chester FC stadium car park is not currently available to the club as it exits on to a currently unadopted road.
In a statement on the official website, the club said: “Chester FC would like to advise supporters that we are currently in dialogue with the local authorities regarding traffic improvements at home games.
“Chester FC appreciate that the post match traffic situation at the Exacta Stadium is a ‘hot topic’ among supporters and the club are looking at solutions that could be put in to practice as soon as possible following the discussions.”
Board member Jeff Banks added: “What we need to do is improve the post match experience, nobody wants to be sitting in traffic.
“The way we see it, if our form continues the number of fans will increase.”
