Engineering Works Could Affect Journies For Those Going To City's Game At Southend

Last updated : 27 September 2018 By CNS Sport










Coventry City supporter travelling to the League One game at Southend United are advised that a bus replacement service is in operation for part of the journey.

For Saturday October 20th and Sunday October 21st, Engineering work is taking place between Shenfield and Southminster / Southend Victoria, closing all lines.

Buses will replace trains between Shenfield and Southminster, and also between Shenfield and Southend Victoria.

Thereforev you are advised to allow extra time for your journey to and from the game.

The nearest train station to Southend's ground is Prittlewell which is on the London Liverpool Street to Southend Victoria line.

As you exit the station turn right, you will then come to a crossroads with traffic lights. On your right is the 'Fish House', fish and chip shop. Pass this and turn right. Walk about 100 yards and the ground is tucked away on your left.

If you happen to end up at Southend Central station (served by trains from London Fenchurch Street), you're about a 25 minute walk from the ground. The main bus station is close to Southend Central, and therefore it may be an idea to get a bus up to the ground, rather than walking.
