Organisers of tonight’s Rod Stewart concert at the University of Bolton Arena are reassuring fans there is adequate public transport to take them to and from the event.
The concert is scheduled to end by approximately 10.30pm with nine trains leaving nearby Horwich Parkway after this time up until 12.09am, giving concert goers plenty of time to make their way to the station which is a five-minute walk from the venue.
The operating trains Bolton/Manchester bound are scheduled to leave at 22:35, 22:52, 23:18, 23:25 and 00:09, while the Preston bound trains will depart at 22:33, 23:05, 23:25 and 23:58.
There is also parking at the venue but given the volume of people attending the concert there will be delays exiting the car park after the concert.
A spokesman for concert promoters Cuffe and Taylor said: “We have worked with local transport bosses for months to ensure there are plenty of options available for people attending this evening’s concert.
“There are nine trains departing from Horwich Parkway Station after the concert ends and there is also parking available.
“We would always urge people to use public transport where possible and we are assured by Transport for Greater Manchester that there are sufficient trains running this evening.”
