Christchurch Stadium is located at 95 Jack Hinton Drive, Addington, Christchurch
If you are coming to a ticketed event it will pay to keep an eye on the event page on What's on as this is where you find up to date information for specific events. Otherwise, we have put the following information together to help you find your way.
Always allow more time than you expect to get to and from the venue and aim to arrive at least 45 minutes before the start of the rugby or event.
Traffic congestion can be heavy for the majority of events particularly if there are other events taking place in the precinct or during peak commuter travel times.
Jack Hinton Drive (between Whiteleigh Ave and Twigger St) is closed on large event days. Off-street parking is also often restricted. To check to see if there is a Traffic Management Plan in place for an event, visit www.tfc.govt.nz
Parking is very limited in and around the stadium on event days, particularly when events are on at the Arena or Raceway.
Mobility Parking is available onsite via the Wrights Road entry. Vehicles must have a valid and appropriate Mobility Pass visible.
If you require a taxi pick up post event we recommend you book this well in advance as taxis can be in high demand in particular later in the evening.
Metro Bus Stops are located nearby on Lincoln Road and Whiteleigh Ave. Visit www.metroinfo.org.nz for more information and timetables.
Pedestrian access is available from all points of entry in to the area. Please stay on footpaths and sides of roads for your safety
