I went to a Neighbourhood Meeting tonight in Cadishead, two guys from the new stadium did a presentation .
Main points that are probably relevent to here are. .
Slotted between the Leigh & Wigan games is to be a cross code game with Sale.
!st Super League game to be 3rd Feb
Traffic concerns raised ,
Stadium company negotiating with Makro , Barton Airport and other local sites for overflow parking.
Community was dropped to make the name of the ground sound more snappy.
Parking exclusions for match traffic being looked at.
Shuttle bus from to and from the Trafford Centre being looked at
Prices for function rooms , pitches etc to be announced soon
No concerns from residents apart from traffic issues.
The guy giving the presentation would`nt budge on Sale ground sharing , saying there were 14 league games at the stadium at the moment.
Stadium looks great, in my opinon
Makes no real difference to me whether we stay at EP, or move to Barton. It's a similar amount (massive) amount of driving to either.

A fun bus? Surely you mean n buses where n could be a largish number. Think of the logistics involved in that!
Did any of you go to HQ by bus?
That was early on a Saturday and 20ish buses could park easily near EP
Try that scenario out on a Fri night.
Buses would have to leave EP by 18.30 at the latest, possiblly 18.00.
To get from home to EP say 30mins and the same on the way back home.
so leave home at 17.30, back about 23.00 plus, possibly 24.00.
Who would do that for 1 game let alone a season?
A keen supporter or a ..........(fill in appropriate definition)

"A new venue would guarantee big crowds".
Why? Winning rugby might, entertaining rugby might, a combination of the 2 might. Until the onfield product improves significantly what's the point of moving & alienating the existing supporter core.
The long awaited Green Travel Plan referred to above, as required by the planning consent!
Will bus passes be accepted? The park and ride at Goodison does. The result is that almost no one using it pays anything.
