Southampton Football Club Stadium and Training Ground

Paul Basham Associates have been successful in assisting Southampton Football Club for over 14 years.

The Brief

Tasked with ensuring world class facilities can be delivered to help the club realise its present and future ambitions, our Transport Planners and Civil Engineers have been instrumental in assisting the football club at both the Stadium and the Training Ground.

Our Approach

For the training ground works, we initially provided feasibility advice on the most appropriate means of access Through careful consideration of the surrounding highway constraints and internal function of the site, an 'In only' solution was developed for coach and service access, with separate access for staff and visitors

With a stadium capacity of over 32 000 ensuring the impact on the local road network is managed is a crucial element of work Our Transport Planning team have worked collaboratively with the club and Southampton City Council to ensure opportunities and strategies were implemented to encourage sustainable travel. More recently, a Stadium Travel Plan and Traffic Management Plan were prepared
(utilising fan specific data) to create action plans for match days, event days and non-match days.

The Result

The football club is actively encouraging sustainable travel, ensuring that the surrounding road network is not adversely affected particularly on match/event days S 278 technical approval was granted for the training ground and has been fully operational now for several years.

From our client

Southampton Football Club would not hesitate in utilising Paul Basham Associates' experience and knowledge again and would recommend their services to any other business in their area of professional traffic consultation.
